BASIX Cost benefit analysis

In 2009, the Department of Planning & Environment (then the Department of Planning) undertook with NERA Economic Consulting an evaluation of the performance of the BASIX policy since its inception, and estimate the future benefits of the scheme out to 2050. The analysis estimated that to 2050 new BASIX dwellings will generate a positive benefit to NSW of between $1.20 and $1.60 for every dollar spent complying with BASIX.
