Call for Evidence on Energy Performance Certificates for Buildings
The Government has announced a Call for Evidence on Energy Performance Certificates for Buildings. The consultation can be found here.
The 2018 Clean Growth Strategy committed to a Call for Evidence seeking views on extending EPCs to other trigger points and how EPCs could be improved in the light of new sources of data and capabilities. The Call for Evidence covers domestic and non-domestic EPCs for all tenure types and includes both new-build and existing dwellings. Its aims are:
a) to gain evidence on how the current EPC system is working;
b) to gather information on the suitability of the current system of EPCs for both their current and emerging uses in measuring building energy performance; and
c) to obtain feedback on suggestions for improvement.
AR has taken a preliminary decision to respond but, before finally deciding, would like to hear the views of members on the questions raised in the consultation.
The closing date for receipt of submissions to the Government is 19 October 2019; members wishing to respond should send their comments to AR CEO, Will McKee by 30 September 2019 at firstname.lastname@example.org
Updates on progress will be published on the AR website.
