ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS
The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) aims to improve the energy performance of buildings throughout the EU by identifying cost-effective measures for reducing consumption. It requires critical assessment of the design of buildings (Energy Performance Certificates, EPCs), the operation of a building by its occupants (Display Energy Certificates, DECs), and the operation of typically inefficient equipment such as boilers and air conditioning systems (TM44 assessments).
THE PROCESS: WHAT WE DELIVER
Energise can assist you in complying with your EPC, DEC and TM44 ACI requirements as part of the UK’s compliance with the EPBD:
This rates how energy efficient your building is – using grades from A to G – and is required for any building over >50 m2. Our accredited energy assessors will perform a site assessment and gather relevant data to help you identify cost-effective and other measures to improve your building’s energy rating. We can also handle submission of your EPC to the Non-Domestic EPC Register if required.
Your buildings must display a DEC if they have a total useful floor area of more than 250 m² or are (part) occupied by any public authority. Depending on the size of the building this may need renewing annually to ensure compliance. Through careful assessment and processing of your data using government-approved software, we can create a fully compliant DEC for each of your premises, as well as submitting your DEC to the Non-Domestic EPC Register if required
These inspections include visual assessment and examination of your air conditioning equipment and controls, providing information on current efficiency, faults that need resolving, ways to improving efficiency and recommendations to reduce air conditioning use. Our assessors will inspect your system components, controls and settings according to industry best practices, then produce a TM44 report and suggestions for improvements or alternatives as required.
