EPCs & DECs
Energy Performance Certificates
Almost all buildings require an EPC certificate on construction, sale or rent. These certificates aim to give the prospective buyer or tenant an indication of the energy efficiency of the building; they also provide recommendations on how it might be improved. Rated from "A" to "G" an "A" rating building will have lower energy consumption and carbon emissions than a "G". Active Energy are accredited and licensed by the Dept of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to provide Energy Performance Certificates for all types of domestic and commercial property and provide advice on low carbon improvement solutions.

Display Energy Certificates
A Display Energy Certificate and Advisory Report are required for buildings with a total useful floor area over 500m2 that are occupied by public authorities and frequently visited by the public

A Display Energy Certificate shows the energy performance of a building based on actual energy consumption as recorded annually over periods up to the last three years (the Operational Rating). The DEC also shows an Asset Rating for this building if this is available (by way of an EPC). The Operational Rating (OR) is a numerical indicator of the actual annual carbon dioxide emissions from the building. The various types of energy consumption from occupying a building must be brought together on a common basis so that the performance of one building can be compared with that of another. The UK has decided that the common unit should be CO2 emissions, since this is a key driver for energy policy.

This rating is shown on a scale from A to G, where A is the lowest CO2 emissions (best) and G is the highest CO2 emissions (worst). Also shown are the Operational Ratings for the previous two years; this provides information on whether the energy performance of the building is improving or not.
