BRE calls for major reforms of EPCs and better trained assessors

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) is advocating for a significant overhaul of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) to better align with net-zero targets.

BRE’s report, “Energy Performance Certificates: Enabling the Home Energy Transition,” suggests various proposals, including reducing EPC lifespans from 10 to 5 years, refining criteria for EPC ratings, utilizing more detailed data for retrofit planning, enhancing training for Domestic Energy Assessors, establishing a provisional EPC rating for the 40% of housing without a formal rating, and promoting wider use of EPC certificate advice for home improvements.

The recommendations aim to enhance the effectiveness of EPCs in contributing to the transition to cleaner energy in homes.
