Commercial EPC's

From 1 October 2008 sellers and landlords have been required by law to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for all buildings or parts of buildings when they are sold or rented. Those carrying out the construction of a building will be required to provide an EPC to the owner.

An Energy Performance Certificate gives prospective buyers or tenants information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions of a building.

The certificate was phased in from April 6 2008 for buildings sold, rented or built with a total floor area of more than 10,000sq m.

From 1 July 2008, this was extended to buildings with a total floor area greater than 2,500 sq m. From 1 October 2008 all remaining commercial buildings will require an EPC on sale or rental or upon construction.


Display Energy Certificates

Public authorities, and institutions providing public services to a large number of persons, such as Schools, Hospitals, Local Government Office etc, who occupy space in a building with a total useful floor area greater than 1000m2, must display a valid Display Energy Certificate (DEC) at all times and have a valid advisory report in their possession.

Each building will require an inspection and issue of the DEC annually, whereas the advisory report will be valid for seven years.


Residential EPC's from £60.00

In an effort to improve energy efficiency, and thus reduce Carbon Emissions, the EU governing body has introduced new legislation which will ensure that Energy Efficiency Ratings are in place in all buildings, whether Residential, Business or Public, and different types of Energy Assessors will be required to produce these.

These ratings are produced in the form of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), or Display Energy Certificates (DECs).
