Summary of our response
The Environmental Audit Committee’s inquiryOpens in a new tab took a broad view of energy efficiency in existing buildings. CREDS’ response focuses on the role that Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) could play in helping to achieve reductions in energy use in buildings, with changes to how EPCs are constructed, applied and shared. This includes better training for energy assessors, better data sharing and the development of ‘real time’ EPCs to provide timely, relevant information on energy performance.
