BASIX assesses cooking systems based on the energy efficiency of the system and the greenhouse gas emission intensity of the fuel used.
A gas cooking system will give a higher score than an electric cooking system.
The order of cooktop scoring in BASIX is:
- Gas cooktop (highest score)
- Induction cooktop
- Electric cooktop (lowest score)
Tip: If you install a gas cooking system, ensure the kitchen is designed with good natural ventilation.
