Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
Key facts:

  • Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) play a crucial role within the MEES regulatory framework, offering a clear and straightforward illustration of a building's energy efficiency. In most cases, they are legally required for non-domestic buildings, and they must be produced upon construction, sale, or leasing.

 

  • Following a thorough assessment, buildings are assigned a rating in the form of a letter, ranging from 'A' (the most efficient) to 'G' (the least efficient). The building owner receives a copy of the certificate and it is lodged on the government register and publicly viewable. The landlord also receives a recommendation report based on the findings of the survey giving further steps to improve the energy efficiency of their building.

 

  • EPCs remain valid for a period of 10 years from the date of lodgment, unless they are voluntarily updated with a new EPC or in the event of a significant refurbishment taking place.

  • As of April 2023, regulatory changes have elevated the standards further, making it illegal to have buildings rated 'F' or 'G,' regardless of their leasehold or tenancy status. Violations of this regulation can result in financial penalties of between £5,000 - £150,000. Anticipated future regulatory updates include a minimum 'C' rating in 2027 and a 'B' rating by 2030.

  • Haptic EPC & Advisory specialises in rapid on-site surveys in and around London, striving to deliver reports within a 24-hour timeframe. We also provide practical and efficient procurement solutions to enhance energy efficiency.

  • For the most complex buildings a Level 5 EPC may be required, this is a proportionally larger undertaking requiring specialist software and assessment in which we are fully qualified.

Step-by-Step Guide to Getting a Commercial EPC in East London

Energy Efficient lighting

1. Booking & Pre-survey

Before your EPC survey providing the following information is highly beneficial, it is an 'ideal' list so don't worry if any of these are missing:-

  • A current, to-scale floorplan that includes geographical orientation and ceiling height(s).

  • The building's construction history, including any extensions or significant refurbishments.

  • Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) manuals.

  • Operations & Maintenance (O&M) manuals.

  • Lighting design specifications (including spare bulbs).

  • Records of any condition-based surveys, often conducted at the time of purchase.

  • Details of recent contractors or fit-out companies that have worked within the space.

By furnishing this information, you contribute to a more precise and comprehensive EPC assessment.

2. Your Site Survey

Our EPC surveys are conducted by fully qualified & insured Non-Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEAs). These surveys are typically completed in less than an hour and are designed to minimise disruption to your staff. Our assessors focus on key areas such as walls, windows, Heating Ventilation and cooling (HVAC) systems, and any hot water systems that may be in use.

It's essential to note that any areas or equipment inaccessible to the assessor are assumed to have default, less efficient values. Therefore, ensuring access to all areas and equipment is in your best interest.

3. Post-Survey

After the on-site survey, the gathered data is meticulously collated and entered into the government's ISBEM software. This step yields two primary outcomes: the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with a score ranging from 'A' to 'G' and a recommendations report detailing energy-saving suggestions.

This phase of the process constitutes the most time-consuming part. In fact, approximately 80% of the total time required to generate an EPC is dedicated to data analysis.

4. Your EPC Report

Once your EPC score has been calculated, our assessor will promptly get in touch with you for a discussion. Following the receipt of payment, we will proceed to list your certificate on the official government register, a process known as "lodgement." This ensures that your EPC is publicly accessible.

In addition to the public listing, you will also receive digital copies of both the EPC and the recommendation report. Many of our clients find this comprehensive package sufficient to continue with their business confidently. However, for those seeking more specialized guidance on achieving energy savings, our Advisory service is available to provide expert assistance.
