The Next Steps: EPCs and the establishment of the Green Homes Service
ACE submitted a written response to the Department for Communities and Local Government’s consultation on The Next Steps: EPCs and the establishment of the Green Homes Service.
In summary, ACE agrees with the following proposals as suggested in the consultation document:
- The EST should be given access to the information contained in domestic EPCs as part of implementing the Green Homes Service.
- The Carbon Trust should be given access to the information contained in non-domestic EPCs.
- Potential buyers and tenants should be able to search the commercial register by address to know whether a given building has an EPC, though not to download it.
ACE also believes that there are several other ways that EPCs can be used to maximise their impact and lead to changes in the way householders and businesses use energy, as discussed in our consultation response.
