Commercial EPC

Commercial EPC

A commercial energy performance certificate (EPC), is a report which shows how energy efficient a building is. Your energy certificate gives the building an energy efficiency rating graded on a scale of A – G for CO2 emissions, with ‘A’ being the most energy-efficient and ‘G’ being the least energy efficient.

Having a good energy efficiency rating can be good for attracting buyers or tenants as it means lower fuel costs for them in the future.
