EPC Choice are a leading provider of commercial Energy Performance Certificates. Established in 2008, we offer a UK-wide service providing EPCs for any type of commercial property.
EPC compliance is changing as the Government seeks to meet its net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The framework for this is set out by the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) and the Government is proposing the following compliance timescale:
- April 2023 – a minimum EPC rating of E will apply to all commercial tenancies1
- April 2025 – 2027 – a minimum EPC rating of C will apply with a 2-year compliance window2
- April 2030 – a minimum EPC rating of B will apply to all commercial properties2
We have a detailed understanding of the MEES legislation and can assist you and your clients in navigating this complex requirement, not only now but on the journey to B rating.
We are uniquely placed in offering the ARBNCO Asset Energy Report (AER). This provides a detailed strategy on the most cost-effective ways to improve a property’s rating and identifies payback periods for individual measures.
EPC compliance can in certain circumstances be impossible to meet. EPC Choice can assist property owners with an Exemption application to the PRS Register, along with specialist advice on Listed and Low Energy buildings.
