Understanding the Implications of changing EPC Legislation

Since the start of April, new laws have come into place making Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) a leading priority for commercial property owners. An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate that gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).  

New changes aim to set minimum standards for energy efficiency in commercial properties, deeming underperforming properties illegal. So, if you manage commercial property and are wondering what impact this may have on you or your business, here is our essential guide. 

1. Why regulations are changing? 

As a crucial step in helping the government achieve net-zero goals by 2050, it is no longer legal to let a property with an EPC rating below E. This sets an important quality standard for commercial property, ensures all properties are energy efficient and aims to reduce associated carbon emissions.  

 2. Are there other changes to prepare for? 

This is only the first step in a series of legislative changes, with EPC ratings minimum requirements set to continue to rise over the next few years, increasing to require a rating of C by 2027 and B by 2030.  

3. What does this mean for commercial property? 

There is no time to wait. EPC ratings must meet the minimum standard now, making it a top priority for property owners.   

The time to act is now 

It is important to get on top of the new regulation changes now, before standards tighten further over the next 7 years. Failure to do so will lead to it being too late to make the energy efficiency changes required, causing many property owners to be sat on properties holding minimal commercial value.
