What is the difference between an EPC and a DEC?
An Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) is required to let potential buyers or tenants how energy efficient your building is. EPCs provide an energy rating for the building with advisory notes on how to make cost affective improvements to make sure the building is energy efficient. The advisories are not compulsory.
A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) is only needed on public building and institutions over 1000m2, such as universities, hospitals, council offices, schools, ect. The DEC is based on the energy usage of the building so the rating is based on consumption levels, this will also come with accompanying advisory notes. The DEC must be publicly displayed within the building.
