In today's market, where environmental responsibility is increasingly valued, a high Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating for your commercial building offers more than just regulatory compliance. It signifies a commitment to sustainability, attracting tenants and buyers who prioritize eco-friendly spaces.

What is an EPC?

An EPC is a legally required document for commercial buildings over 50 square metres that are being sold or rented. It assesses the energy efficiency of a building and assigns a grade from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).

Why is an EPC Important?

There are several reasons why an EPC is important for your commercial property:

  • Compliance: Failing to provide a valid EPC when selling or renting a building can result in fines of up to £5,000.

  • Market Value: A high EPC rating (A-C) typically indicates a more energy-efficient building. This can significantly increase your property's market value as tenants and buyers increasingly prioritize sustainability. Lower energy bills can also be a selling point for tenants.

  • Environmental Impact: Buildings are significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Implementing energy-saving measures can reduce your building's environmental impact.

What Does an EPC Include?

An EPC will typically include the following information:

  • The building's current energy efficiency rating (A-G)

  • Recommendations for improvements to enhance energy efficiency

  • Estimated energy costs based on the current rating

  • Potential energy cost savings with recommended improvements
