Hi, we’re Lilypad Energy Rating.
We do accredited energy efficiency assessments (NatHERS ratings) and thermal performance consultation for new single and dual occupancy homes, renovations and additions.
Our idea of a perfect home is cosy in winter and cool in summer, without reliance on artificial heating and cooling. A carefully balanced space that is just enough, so we can relax, and our earth can breathe. A home created more for living in than exhibiting. Just imagine!
We relish working with like-minded people—building designers, architects, builders, home owners and home dreamers—who have similar thoughtful and realistic goals.
We go way beyond compliance and box ticking to get exceptional results for you. Our motto is ‘More than stars’—because there’s so much more to energy efficiency than just a star rating. We tailor our services to your goals so you can make enlightened decisions for better results. Sound good?
We’re based in Geelong, specialise in the Greater Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions, and happily take on more distant projects virtually.
Ready? Let's get started.
Anni founded Lilypad Energy Rating after attending one too many home inspections and finding herself asking (quietly) ‘Why, why, why?’ So many missed opportunities to create a brilliant, comfy, liveable home, so much money wasted on [insert latest trend]. All crying out ‘But we didn’t know!’
Being a practical dreamer, I set out to do what I could, in my own small way. I am obsessed with making homes great to live in. I hate being too cold. Or too hot. And spending more money than necessary desperately seeking comfort.
Living in Geelong gives me the opportunity to experience a remarkable variety of weather conditions and their impact on a home and the people in it.
My purpose is to find the best energy efficiency and thermal comfort wins in your project, and help you avoid missed opportunities and expensive mistakes, so you get the incredible home you’ve dreamed of.

Every project we work on is unique—varying complexity, wide range of client goals, different budgets, travel time, number and type of modelling iterations required, etc etc, making it difficult to have a one size fits all price list.
We always discuss cost with you up front before embarking on any work, so you know what you’re getting and what your investment will be.
