Energy Performance Certificates

Energy Performance Certificates

As the reality of global warming starts to bite, new legislation has recently come into force relating to the energy efficiency of buildings. In the same way as domestic appliances are given energy ratings so too will buildings. From January 4th 2009 all commercial buildings built, or offered for sale or lease were required by law to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

It is expected that the rateable value of a building will be linked to its energy performance. GNA are accredited to assess buildings and issue EPC’s . Our aim is to provide the most accurate assessment possible and thereby ensure the lowest possible rateable value. We are also well placed to advise on measures to improve performance and achieve better ratings.
