Energy Performance Buildings Directive

The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) was introduced in the UK back in January 2006.

As a reminder for you if you are involved with commercial property projects, there are two sections of this directive which affect commercial property:

1.       Energy Performance Certificates

2.       EPBD Air-conditioning Inspections

The important dates to note from this directive are that from October 2008, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) have been mandatory upon construction, sale, or rental of any non-domestic building, whether new or existing.

From 4th Jan 2011, EPBD Air-conditioning Inspections have been required for all buildings where the total air-conditioning capacity is over 12kW. 

A new user of a system must have in their possession a copy of a current Air-conditioning report within 3 months of taking over a system.
