All Commercial buildings, sold or rented out, require a Commercial EPC Energy Performance Certificate. This is a legal requirement for all properties throughout South Wales.
A Commercial EPC for non-domestic building provides an energy rating. Services such as lighting, heating, ventilation are accounted for in generating the rating for the commercial EPC in South Wales, as well as the structure of the building.
The now industry standardised A to G energy rating, could then be used by potential buyers or tenants to make comparisons between the property in South Wales, compared to other nondomestic buildings. The Commercial EPC Energy Performance Certificate is accompanied by a secondary report that provides recommendations on how the energy performance of the building could be enhanced, together with an indication of the payback period.
The Mining history of South Wales, was famous for its coal mining in the Rhondda. With Barry and Cardiff having the biggest exporting ports in the world. Properties were built for both the coal face miners, as well as the accountants, supervisors and managers. Also brought about a large stock of commercial property, built between 1850 and 1930, of which is good for our heritage, but is not very energy efficient. Our local South Wales surveyor Phil Stacey, will take this heritage into consideration while completing your commercial EPC, and recommendation report.
Commercial EPC MEES regulations for properties in South Wales
NEW MEES REGULATIONS
Guidance for landlords and enforcement authorities on the minimum level of energy efficiency required to let non-domestic property under the Energy Efficiency for Private Rented Property in South Wales.
The energy we use for heating and powering our non-domestic buildings is responsible for around 12% of the UK’s emissions. Around 60% of today’s non-domestic buildings will still exist in 2050, representing around 40-45% of the total floor space. Whilst standards to tackle the performance of new buildings have been in place for some time, minimum standards to drive improvements in the performance of the existing stock through energy efficiency upgrades are essential going forward to tackle energy used and reduce emissions across the non-domestic stock including South Wales.
The Energy Efficiency are designed to tackle the very least energy efficient properties in South Wales – those commercial EPC rated F or G on their Energy Performance Certificate. These properties waste energy – not only contributing to the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, but also an unnecessary cost on business and the wider economy. The Regulations establish a minimum standard for both domestic and non-domestic privately rented property throughout South Wales.
The Minimum Level of Energy Efficiency in South Wales for a commercial EPC
The Regulations set out the minimum level of energy efficiency for private rented property in South Wales. In relation to the non-domestic private rented sector, Part 3 of the Regulations contains the minimum level of energy efficiency provisions, which is currently set at an energy performance certificate commercial EPC rating of at least band E. As band E is a minimum, therefore landlords in South Wales who are installing relevant energy efficiency improvements may also wish to aim above and beyond the current requirement, in order to achieve greater energy savings.
The minimum level of energy efficiency provisions will mean that, subject to certain requirements and exemptions:
a) from 1 April 2018, landlords of non-domestic private rented properties in South Wales may not grant a tenancy to new or existing tenants if their property has an commercial EPC rating of band F or G (shown on a valid commercial EPC for the property).
b) from 1 April 2023, landlords in South Wales must not continue letting a non-domestic property which is already let if that property has a commercial EPC rating of band F or G.
