Commericial EPC

Energy performance certificate for business premises

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rates how energy efficient is your building using grades from A to G (with ‘A’ the most efficient grade).

When you need an EPC

You must have an EPC if:

  • you rent out or sell the premises
  • a building under construction is finished
  • there are changes to the number of parts used for separate occupation and these changes involve providing or extending fixed heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation systems

What an EPC looks like

Commercial EPC is made up of two documents. The energy performance certificate and recommendation report.

The key information an EPC contains is the graph to show how energy efficient the building is with a rating from A to G.

Properties are also given a score. The larger the number, the more carbon dioxide (CO2) your property is likely to emit.
