Energy Performance Certificate

> Energy Certificates

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), rates how energy efficient your building is using grades from A to G.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) are required under the Energy Performance Buildings Directive (EPBD) for all conditioned buildings over 50m2 when built, made for sale or made for rent.

The EPC is designed to be a saleable feature for your building and provides interested parties in the future with evidence of energy consumption.

How can GENEX help?

We are experienced in preparing and delivering EPCs for buildings of all sizes, uses and complexity and our highly trained and accredited assessors are fully conversant with the latest legislation and can advise you which elements will apply to your property or development.

What is a Display Energy Certificate (DEC)?

The main distinction between a DEC and an EPC is that a Display Energy Certificate is a rating based on actual consumption of a building.

DECs are required for all publicly occupied buildings or parts of buildings over 250m2, which are regularly visited by the public.

How can GENEX help?

We have many years of experience working for, and on behalf of public bodies and have a great deal of experience in delivering DECs for developments, ranging from individual buildings to large regional Council portfolios.

DEC is an in-depth and often complex area, so please contact the GENEX team for more detailed information or download our detailed factsheet.

Air Conditioning Inspections

All air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW must be regularly inspected by an Energy Assessor and the inspections must be no more than five years apart.

Detailed regulatory perimeter guidelines can be found by download our detailed factsheet.

An Air Conditioning Energy Assessment will ensure that your organisation is complying with current EU Directives and the benefits and objections to you from undertaking an air conditioning inspection are to:

  • Provide building owners and operators with information about system performance
  • Identify opportunities to reduce your CO2 emissions
  • Save energy and money

How can GENEX help?

The output of inspection will be reported to highlight measures that you can take to make improvements. GENEX can deliver these inspection reports through our own CIBSE trained and accredited engineers, who themselves have many years of building services design experience and, because we’re independently accredited, we’re perfectly positioned to help you maximise the potential benefits and energy savings.
