NRG Focus are specialists in providing EPC (Energy Performance Certificates) for commercial buildings. Based just outside Sheffield, we operate throughout Leeds, York and the surrounding areas of Yorkshire, with services spanning throughout the UK.

An EPC is a measure of the national energy performance capability of a building, and are part of a series of legislation to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of the UK’s commercial buildings. The energy rating is expressed on an A to G colour-coded bar chart, similar to those seen on cookers and fridges. The rating is based on the CO2 emissions of the building, factoring in the building’s construction fabric and heating, cooling and lighting services.

All commercial buildings on the market, for sale or let, require an EPC to be in place, from the first day the building is marketed. Newly constructed buildings require an EPC before completion.

Certain buildings are exempt from EPC assessments. EPCs are not required for:

  • Places of worship.
  • Temporary buildings with a planned use of less than two years.
  • Detached, self-contained buildings less than 50 sq. m.
  • Industrial and agricultural buildings without any heating, where it would not be expected to be installed.
  • Buildings due for demolition. Proof is required including vacant possession and intent, such as a signed demolition contract or planning permission.

Lets Get Started

EPC Assessment

The legal responsibility to have an EPC assessment lies with the organisation that has placed the building on the market, such as the landlord, the company seeking an assignment, or subtenant. The marketing agent also has a legal responsibility to have EPCs in place for the buildings they are advertising.

Once the assessment has been completed, the EPC is valid for 10 years, and the certificate is available on the UK Government’s Landmark database, which has full public access. A report of recommendations accompanies the certificate, and sets out suggestions to improve the energy efficiency of the building in short, medium and long payback periods.

For multi-let buildings our assessors can provide an EPC for just the part being marketed, or for the whole building. One EPC can be obtained to cover the whole of a multi-let building if it has a common, centralised heating system. This EPC can then be reused for the next 10 years if individual floors or suites are let, or if the whole building is let or sold.

The penalty for failing to have an EPC in place while a building is being marketed is 12.5% of the Rateable Value, subject to a minimum of £500 and a maximum of £5,000, enforced by local Trading Standards officers. The penalty is repeated every 28 days if an EPC is still not prepared.
