Making better use of energy performance certificates and data

2nd March 2010
<< back to news

Buildings account for almost 50 per cent of the UK's carbon emissions. The Climate Change Act 2008 commits the UK to a statutory target to reduce its carbon emissions (from all sources) by 80 per cent by 2050. The Heat and Energy Saving Strategy: a consultation (HESS)1 in February 2009 proposed the Government's approach for reducing carbon emissions from existing homes by 2050, setting ambitious milestones for:
  • all houses to have cavity wall and loft insulation by 2015
  • all homes and other buildings to have received all available cost-effective measures by 2030
  • emissions from buildings to be as close to zero as possible by 2050.
In this further consultation process, among other proposals, views are sought on making better use of the energy performance data by extending and managing access to EPC data held on the England and Wales domestic and non-domestic EPC registers.
