Energy Performance Certificates

Towergate has teamed up with Personal Touch Energy Surveyors (PTES) to provide a professional and competitively priced energy certification service to our customers.

PTES has a national team of appropriately qualified and accredited energy surveyors. Following a site visit they will provide clients with the required Energy Performance or Display Energy Certificate, along with a simple report and advice on how to improve energy efficiency.

Energy Performance Certification – What do the new requirements mean to you?

From January 2009 Energy Performance Certificates became a legal requirement across the UK, following the implementation of the European Energy Performance Buildings Directive.

This requires the production of an appropriate Energy Certificate and advisory or recommendations report for all types of properties. The need for this is triggered:-

  • On construction or substantial modification / extension of a building
  • On the sale or letting of a building
  • On an annual basis for all pubic buildings over 1000sqm

To help potential tenants, owners and occupiers consider energy efficiency in their investment, the certificate will contain:-

  • The energy rating on a A-G scale based on the efficiency of the building or on actual energy consumption
  • Suggestions on how to improve the energy efficiency of the building
  • Information on the property’s energy efficiency rating

Commercial and domestic property owners need to identify a suitably qualified Energy Assessor who is a member of an approved Accreditation Body to undertake the assessment and provide a suitable Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The EPC is then valid for 10 years.

Occupiers of public buildings are also required to appoint a similarly qualified Assessor to provide a Display Energy Certificate annually.
