What Does EPC Stand For?

An energy performance certificate (EPC) is a document that certifies the environmental and economic performance of a building. The document typically includes an assessment of the building's energy consumption, renewable energy use, emissions, and waste management. 

In the UK, an EPC is also known as a building performance certificate (BPC). An EPC can help reduce the overall carbon footprint of a building. The document can also help improve the energy efficiency of a building.

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a UK-based standard for measuring the energy performance of buildings. The standard was developed by the UK's Department of Trade and Industry in collaboration with the Building Research Establishment (BRE).

An EPC may be issued to a new or existing building, or to an alteration. The document may certify that the building meets a certain level of energy efficiency, or it may provide information on how the building could be improved. The EPC can be used as the basis for awarding government subsidies or for marketing purposes.

The European Union has set minimum standards for EPCs and related documents, including an Energy Performance Index (EPI), which is used to compare the levels of efficiency of different buildings.

What Is EPC Rating?

The EPC is issued by certifying organizations, such as the UK Green Building Council (GBC), and shows how much energy the building uses, the amount of CO2 emissions it produces, and how much renewable energy it generates.

The EPC ratings are based on six categories: environmental impact, resource use, emissions, indoor environmental quality, health and comfort, and durability. The environmental impact category includes topics like climate change mitigation and renewable energy use. The resource use category includes topics like water conservation and reducing waste. Emissions include topics like reducing toxic emissions and creating green roofs. Indoor environmental quality includes topics like air quality and noise levels. Health and comfort includes topics like thermal insulation and day lighting. Durability includes topics like earthquake resistance and fire protection

What Do The EPC Ratings Mean?

The EPC rating system is used in the UK and many other countries to measure the energy consumption and environmental performance of products and services.

The EPC rating system is based on the concept of annual energy consumption (AEC). An EPC rating is a three-part rating, with part A measuring the building envelope, part B measuring the insulation levels, and part C measuring the mechanical and electrical performance. The higher the rating of a building, the greater its efficiency.

The EPC is a mandatory certification for new buildings in the United Kingdom. The EPC rating evaluates a building's energy performance and provides an indication of the amount of energy that the building can consume over its lifetime without compromising its occupants' comfort or safety.

The EPC ratings are expressed in terms of kWh/ year, with A being the best performance and G the worst. Every new UK building must be certified as having at least an A rating, and most will have ratings from A+ to G. A+ is the most environmentally friendly and it is equivalent to a US LEED Gold rating, while G indicates a building that is not suitable for occupancy. Buildings rated C or lower may only be used for specific purposes such as warehouses or industrial plants.

The structure, operation, maintenance and monitoring of the building must also be considered when issuing an EPC. The EPC should be updated every three years.
