The UK’s largest independent provider of energy assessment, retrofit and property professional training, software and accreditation.
Who are Elmhurst Energy?
When it comes to the energy performance of buildings, and what goes into assessing that performance, Elmhurst is one of the UK’s leading experts.
Our involvement in this industry spans over 30 years. During this time we have trained chartered surveyors to produce home energy reports as part of the home buying surveys, created the UK’s first standardised methodology to calculate the energy efficiency of existing homes, and trained & accredited thousands of individuals to undertake energy assessments and produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs).
Today, we are the UK’s largest accreditation scheme for energy assessors, with over 50% of all EPCs submitted through our systems. Our expertise has also allowed us to expand our training and accreditation offering to cover other property related disciplines, such as retrofit and legionella risk assessment.READ OUR STORY OUR MISSION AND VALUES
