Display Energy Certificates (DEC)

A DEC reports a buildings energy rating on a scale that runs from A to G with A being very efficient and G being the least. This rating is based on the actual amount of metered usage over the course of 12 months. In accordance with Government legislation, any building occupied by a public authority with a total floor area of over 250m2 and frequently visited by the public must have a DEC in place.

Our accredited assessor will carry out a full audit of your public building’s energy usage to provide an energy rating. The assessor will also provide a recommendation report detailing how to improve the building’s energy performance, including an indication of the payback period for each suggested measure.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

A Commercial Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a legal document that assesses the energy efficiency rating of a commercial property on a scale of A to G. An A rating is the most energy efficient and G is the least energy efficient. EPCs are legally required when selling, leasing, or constructing a business property, providing recommendations on how to improve a building’s energy performance. A commercial EPC is valid for 10 years, after which it must be renewed if you intend to sell the property or let it to a new tenant.

Our accredited assessors produce over 1,000 commerical EPCs a year. They will not only provide a precise rating, but they also identify potential areas of concern and offer guidance on improvements, using the most logistical and cost-effective measures.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

In order to comply with the MEES legislation, property owners and landlords are required to assess their property’s energy performance and take necessary steps to improve its energy efficiency if it does not meet the MEES standards. This typically involves obtaining an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which rates the property’s energy efficiency on a scale of A to G. LASER can assist you in identifying, evaluating, and ensuring compliance for any properties that do not meet the MEES standards.

  • Ensuring regulatory compliance and avoid potential penalties.
  • Enhance building efficiency.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint and energy expenses.

Portfolio gap analysis

We will work with you to identify which properties the regulations will affect, where existing EPCs are in place and ensure the most recent certificates are considered. Properties that may require improvements or EPCs will then be highlighted.

Closing the gap

For those highlighted properties, we can provide EPCs and produce a summary report with an overview of the current position of the property in relation to the legislation. This provides a notice period for the work that is required.

Ensure compliance

Our team has an in-depth understanding of the challenges that public sector organisation’s face. Partnering with us means receiving support and advice, our accredited assessors will also provide a tailored proposal to deliver the support necessary, so that your public buildings meet obligations and are compliant with the legislation. This will minimise any potential loss of revenue and eliminate any risk of incurring fines.

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

ESOS is a scheme that requires large organisations to conduct energy audits every four years to identify cost-effective measures that can save energy. Our accredited Lead Assessor and advisers can provide a full ESOS compliant service and help you build an ESOS plan that not only ensures compliance with the scheme but also delivers practical energy saving measures.

  • Identify energy saving measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs
  • Comply with legal obligations and regulations
  • Enhance environmental reputation and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
