The BSL strongly supports minimum energy efficiency standards for rented homes, which we see as a vital policy that will lower cost of living and improve health and comfort for renters, particularly the people facing disadvantage who we work with. Standards are particularly effective at improving the quality of the poorest quality homes, which are often rented by people on low incomes. People in these poor quality homes are too often in an unenviable position – high rent and low income give them limited choice in the market, if they end up in a poor quality home (as they often do) they face higher electricity bills or poor health and wellbeing outcomes. Minimum standards can go some way to addressing this issue. Standards will also contribute to Australia’s climate change response and improve air pollution. 10 December 2021 Damian Sullivan, Principal, Policy and Research, Climate Change, Energy and Equity
