EPC Commercial Energy Performance Certificate
If you’re selling or creating a new lease for your commercial building, you must display a Commercial EPC certificate. Fines for non-compliance can be up to £5000. We can complete your EPC certificate and get it on the commercial EPC register for Scotland within 48 hours.

Simplified Building Energy Model Calculations
SBEM calculations must be carried out as part of the Building Warrant applications for almost all commercial buildings. We’ll help you prepare for your submission and make sure the development complies with Section 6 of the Scottish building regulations.
Standard Assessment Procedure Methodology
All new residential buildings including some conversions and extensions now require a SAP assessment as part of the building warrant application. SAP assessments are used to determine if the proposed development complies with local buildings regulations on energy efficiency.
Compliance and Assessments
Participants must ensure that at least 90% of their total energy use is subject to ESOS Energy Audits or an alternative route to compliance. For the purposes of ESOS the areas of energy usage which cumulatively meet 90% of total energy consumption are referred to as ‘areas of significant energy use’. Other areas of energy consumption will not require an audit.
Display Energy Certificates (DEC)
A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) displays the energy performance of a building over a 12 month period, based on the operational rating, on a scale from A to G. The DEC may be accompanied by an advisory report which outlines how the organisation can reduce their energy consumption.
