Notably, all commercial properties are available in the UK to buy or rent have to have a commercial Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Therefore, if you own an investment building, getting an energy performance inspection carried out could help you identify methods to save money on your energy expenses.
To clarify, from 1st October 2008, all non-domestic/ commercial buildings on construction, sale and rent will require a Non-Domestic / commercial Energy Performance Certificate (NDEPC) and a Recommendation Report (RR).
Moreover, this information will help property owners and tenants make their building more energy-efficient and allow potential buyers and tenants to compare the energy performance of different buildings.
First, it stated from 6th April 2008 for buildings with a floor area of 10000m². Second, In July 2008, this has extended to buildings with a floor area of 2500m².
Furthermore, From October 2008, all larger public/commercial buildings requires an annual Display Energy Certificate (DEC) highlighting their energy performance.
To be sure, you will need to display it prominently, so it is visible to the public. In general, these buildings will also require an Advisory Report (AR), providing recommendations for energy improvements every seven years. Contact now and get your NDEPC.
