Heat Pump Water Heater: RIS Scenario Assessment

Client: Plumbing Industry Commission, Victoria

EnergyConsult provided advice to the Plumbing Industry Commission (PIC) on the suitability of the data and assumptions that relate to the proposed amended regulation. The objective of that regulation is to ensure that gas boosted solar water heaters are installed in areas where reticulated natural gas is available for connection to new Class 1 buildings, when complying with the provisions of the 5 Star Standard for new homes. A comprehensive report was prepared that detailed the scenarios and findings of the analysis.
