What Is a Commercial EPC?
A commercial EPC rates non-domestic buildings on their energy efficiency. EPC regulations mean ratings are given on a scale of A to G, with A being the most efficient and G being the least energy efficient.
Why were EPCs introduced?
EPCs were first introduced by the government in an effort to improve energy efficiency in buildings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They also exist to make people aware of the amount of energy a building uses.
This is helpful if you are looking to buy or rent a commercial space for your business. It gives an idea of how energy efficient the building is and how this could impact energy bills.
