An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required by law in order to sell the freehold or lease of your commercial premises. The certificate shows how energy efficient the property is, providing potential buyers/renters with an idea of how much they would be spending on energy bills before making a serious commitment.
A Commercial EPC is accompanied with a Recommendations Report – a generic list of advocated alterations and/or additions i.e. installing insulation, which the Energy Saving Trust (EST) reports is one of the best ways to reduce energy consumption.
