Elmhurst publishes draft response to the Non-Domestic PRS MEES Implementation of the EPC B Future Target Consultation
In 2019, the Government published a consultation on how best to improve the energy performance of non-domestic private rented buildings through tighter minimum energy standards. They set out the Government’s preferred option to set a long-term trajectory that would require all non-domestic rented buildings to meet an EPC B by 2030.
Following significant support for the EPC B option, on 17th March 2021 the Government released Non-Domestic Private Rented Sector Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards - Implementation of the EPC B Future Target consultation.
We have now created our ‘draft’ consultation response and ask members to have a read and either tell us what you think, or, even better, complete your own response. There is no one better placed to comment than the Elmhurst members who spend their lives analysing and improving the energy efficiency of non-domestic buildings.
