Energy Performance Certificates

Energy Performance Certificates

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that is now required for all properties put up for sale or rent in Scotland. Brought into force in early 2009, it's main purpose is to provide home owners, tenants and buyers with information on the energy efficiency of their property.

It gives the building a standard energy and carbon emission efficiency grade from 'A' to 'G', where 'A' is the most efficient and 'G' the least efficient.

The EPC details the energy use, carbon dioxide emission and fuel costs of the building, whilst providing a number of recommendations to reduce CO2 emissions and save money on fuel costs.

The Energy Performance Certificate must be made available free of charge to any prospective tenants / buyers at the earliest opportunity. Failure to provide an EPC could result in penalty charges of up to £200.
