About Elmhurst Energy
Elmhurst Energy is the leading independent provider of energy assessment training, software and accreditation. Established in 1993 and operating across the UK, we’re recognised for driving standards across the industry and providing outstanding technical support.
Our solutions are used by thousands of clients including chartered surveyors, architects, house builders, building control bodies, insulation manufacturers and residential social landlords.
Elmhurst Energy has been at the forefront of energy assessments since the beginning and helped to create what the industry now know as the EPC (Energy Performance Certificate). It was through using our extensive knowledge and real life experience of providing business solutions to rate the energy efficiency of buildings that the UK was able to provide a standardised approach to Energy Rating using EPCs.
We have been heavily involved in all the amendments and changes to the EPC and RdSAP/SAP methodology from the start- and there have been many! It is now a very different methodology, but at its heart it is still a measuring tool to compare and contrast domestic dwellings.
At Elmhurst we value our history, but ensure that we build upon it by always being at the cutting edge of this fast moving industry. As an accreditation scheme we believe we offer more; we say more, we campaign more and we stand up for assessors and the industry.

Elmhurst are passionate about supporting a sustainable industry for energy assessors alongside energy efficiency products and service providers. Through our sustained activities we ensure that energy efficiency is always at the forefront of the political and business agenda.

- Identifying and communicating changes in the energy assessment industry.
- Formulating a position, even when that might be perceived by some as challenging, if we believe it to be right.
- Proactively speaking on behalf of industry members who share our vision.
We deliver bespoke software solutions to large organisations which helps them share and analyse assessment data faster and ensure accuracy and visibility within their workflow. We also offer tailored training packages for those needed to understand energy efficiency along with tools for quick energy assessments that could help you with generating leads.
