An Energy Performance Certificate or EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years. It also provides an assessment of the impact the property has upon the environment using a similar scale for emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).
EPCs are available for both domestic and non-domestic properties but they are both different. The process involved in producing a non-domestic EPC is more complex and both certificates are formatted differently. In both cases the certificate comes with recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of the building. For domestic properties these are included on the certificate whilst for non-domestic premises they are provided in a separate report.
