Commercial Energy Performance Certificates (EPC's) certify how energy efficient a property is by using a rating system from A-G, with A being the most efficient.
All buildings advertised for sale or rent require an EPC. A Commercial Energy Performance Certificate will tell sellers and landlords where there is room for energy improvement as far as their properties are concerned. A Commercial EPC is valid for ten years, being not only a mandatory requirement but also a highly effective measure.
The Commercial Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) enables investors and occupiers to compare the energy efficiency of buildings and to make their decisions after they have seen the EPC. Due to the Commercial EPC, the commercial property sector will benefit from a visible, quantifiable and mandatory energy performance certificate and an accurate comparison of energy efficiency of several commercial properties. These factors should change the perspective of the ones who invest in commercial properties due to the costs of utility which service those buildings.
A Commercial EPC can only be produced by a qualified non domestic energy assessor. This certificate will be required upon construction, sale or lease for all non-dwellings, including retail units, office’s, industrial units, warehouses, supermarkets and houses with multiple occupations.
Currently MEES regulations say that a building which does not achieve an E rating cannot be rented out to a tenant.
