Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

What is an Energy Performance Certificate?

An Energy Performance Certificate is needed before any residential property is sold, leased or rented. An EPC is a record of the actual and potential energy saving aspects of a particular property. The property is assessed using the UK's Standard Assessment Procedure. Its performance is rated in terms of energy use per sq metre of floor area. Energy efficiency is based on fuel costs and environmental impact based on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
