Since July 9th 2015 all public buildings with a total floor area of 250m2 or greater are obligated by law to be in the possession of a valid Display Energy Certificate (DEC) and Advisory Report (AR).
DECs highlight the energy performance of building using a scale that runs from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is the least efficient. The rating is based on the actual amount of metered energy used by the building over a 12 month assessment period, while the Advisory Report contains recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of the building (i.e. its fabric and associated services such as heating, ventilation and lighting).
Where the building has a total floor area of 1,000m² or more, the DEC is valid for 12 months. The accompanying advisory report is valid for 7 years. For buildings with a floor area measuring 250m² – 999m², both the DEC and advisory report are valid for 10 years.
Over the last two years Tom Muncey, NEP’s commercial Energy Assessor has delivered over 600 DECs to schools, leisure centres, rugby clubs and even recycling centres.
NEP Energy Services has longstanding contracts with Nottinghamshire County Council, Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council. NEP is also part of Derby City Council’s new DEC framework launching soon.
For more information, an informal chat or to book a survey please contact either Darren Barker (NEPes Contracts Manager) or Lucy Hull (Project Administrator).
