An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is intended to inform a potential purchaser or tenant about the energy performance of a building, so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment decision to buy or rent a property.

The EPC is a compulsory document which a seller or landlord must by law provide when putting their property on the market. The EPC will show an energy efficiency rating for the energy performance of a home from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is very inefficient.

This is similar to the ratings now displayed on domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.


The rating is based on factors such as age, size, construction, heating, lighting, and insulation. EPCs are calculated on the basis of standard occupancy energy usage patterns to ensure that the results are consistent for similar building types and relate to the physical fabric of the building rather than the energy usage patterns of the individual occupant which can vary appreciably between households.

This enables prospective buyers or tenants to compare EPCs on a like for like basis. Accompanying the energy efficiency rating is an environmental impact rating of the CO2 emissions relating to the property. A recommendation report forms part of the certificate and it provides information about a range of improvement measures which could improve the home's energy performance. 

The introduction of the 2018 Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards Act will finally bring about fundamental changes to the private rental sector in Britain. For Landlords the full details can be found on the link below, as issued by the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy.
