Compliance365’s extensive team of qualified, experienced Energy Consultants can help to ensure you’re compliant with EPC regulations.
Since October 2008, the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012, have made it unlawful to sell or let any stand-alone building over 50m² without a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
An EPC, which is valid for 10 years, measures the energy efficiency of a building, shown on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Failure to provide an EPC to a potential buyer/tenant can result in fines of up to £5,000.
Compliance365 has experience delivering Domestic and Commercial EPCs to organisations across various sectors within the UK, including; housing associations, commercial estate agents, major retailers, pubs and local government.
What can Compliance365 do for your organisation?
At Compliance365 we have an extensive team of accredited Energy Consultants who;
- Calculate the Energy Rating of the property by visiting site and producing an EPC
- Create 3D Building Models to simulate energy savings within a property (Only required for Commercial EPCs)
- Formulate an EPC review which suggests changes that can be made to the property to increase the energy rating
- Produce an Energy Audit which budgets those proposed changes for the client
Are you aware of the upcoming legislative changes relating to EPCs?
Under the Energy Act 2011, from April 2018, amendments will be made to the EPC requirements for property owners, in England and Wales, under the name of the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS), also referred to as the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES). This new legislation will make it unlawful to let properties with an EPC rating below E, until changes have been made to improve the buildings energy efficiency. Penalties for non-compliance with MEPS will range from £5,000 to £150,000, depending on the value of the property.
Preparation is required when it comes to improving the EPC rating of a property, therefore property owners are being urged to act now so that they are compliant with MEPS by April 2018 – Compliance365 can help.
Improving the energy efficiency of your building not only ensures you’re compliant with the relevant energy legislation but it also delivers high energy and cost savings!
