The Elmhurst Energy Report 

The Elmhurst Energy Report, previously known as the Energy Performance Report (EPR), is a useful tool for members who need to model a dwelling's energy performance for situations where an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is either not appropriate or not required, such as modelling the current and potential energy rating of a home as well as the impact of potential recommended measures.

MEES driving demand for EPCs

MEES regulations continues to drive demand for EPCs in the private rented sector, with landlords comissioning more up to date EPCs to guage the current energy performance of their housing stock. Moreover, In April 2020, MEES regulations will be extended to all residential private rented properties. This means that in addition to prohibiting new leases for properties rated E or below, leases that have already been granted will also have to comply with the regulations.

You can take a look at an example Energy Report below.

Using the Elmhurst Energy Report for MEES

The Elmhurst Energy Report delivers information which is similar to the EPC providing a clear view of a property's energy performance. The submission of an Energy Report costs the same as your current lodgement fee, however, with the Energy Report you will not need to pay any central register fee. Landlords eager to comply with MEES will want to know the energy rating of their property both before and after installation of improvement measures.

Elmhurst recommends that in the first instance members should use RdSAP to produce an Energy Report to clients in order to show the current energy rating and recommended improvement measures for that property. We guarantee that clients will find the Energy Report much easier to follow, with the unnecessary clutter (which is present on the EPC) removed. Moreover, members will also save on cost by not lodging to the central register, which, given the demand in this area, could prove to be quite significant over time.

Energy Report

What information does this report provide?

The information provided within the Energy Report is presented in a format which is both concise and easy for clients to understand. It can be generated through Elmhurst's RdSAP Online or RdSAP Go software using the latest RdSAP methodology. It is important to note that an Energy Report is not an EPC and should not be used in its place, as it does not satisfy the legal requirements. The following information is provided within this report:

Energy Rating


Estimated energy costs of the dwelling

Estimated CO2 emissions of the dwelling
