1) Requires all properties (homes, commercial and public buildings) owners to make an energy performance certificate (EPC) available for buyers or tenants.
A person responsible for having construction work carried out, when a building is constructed or modified, should make an energy performance certificate available to the owner of the building not more than five days after the work has been completed. EPC must not be more than 10 years old.
2) Requires that all air-conditioning systems over 12kW must be regularly inspected by an Energy Assessor. The energy assessor will highlight improvements to the operation of existing systems or opportunities to replace older, less energy efficient systems or oversized systems with new energy efficient systems.
The inspections must be no more than five years apart. One or more air conditioning units within a building controlled by a single person are considered to comprise a single air conditioning system for the purposes of the regulations.
EPC, DEC, air conditioning inspection report, assessor qualification, reports.
These regulations do not apply to:
(a) buildings officially protected as part of a designated environment or because of their special architectural or historical merit, in so far as compliance with certain minimum energy performance requirements would unacceptably alter their character or appearance;
(b ) buildings used as places of worship and for religious activities;
(c) temporary buildings with a time of use of two years or less;
(d) industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings with low energy demand;
(e) non-residential agricultural buildings which are in use by a sector covered by a national sectoral agreement on energy performance;
(f) residential buildings which are used or intended to be used—
(i) for less than four months of the year, or
(ii) for a limited annual time of use and with an expected energy consumption of less than 25% of what would be the result of all-year use; and
(g) stand-alone buildings with a total useful floor area of less than 50m².
