Display Energy Certificates (DEC)
Display Energy Certificates Energy Certificates and Compliance for Public Buildings
Display Energy Certificate a Publicly Displayed Certificate
Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are legally required energy certificates for public buildings. The size of the building dictates the frequency that the energy assessment needs to be carried out. Public buildings over 1000sqm must have a DEC carried out every year and between 250m² – 999m² every 10 Years. Public buildings which occupy less than 250m² do not require a Display Energy Certificate.
DECs must be carried out by a certified DEC assessor and lodged on the government register. An advisory report is also required when the building is first assessed. DECs, much like the commercial and domestic EPC’s, show potential energy-saving improvements that could be made to the building.
In order to carry out a DEC 12 months’ worth of energy consumption data or energy bills will be required by our assessor as without it they cannot calculate the rating and complete the certificate. Once received the certificate must be displayed in an area where it can be viewed by the public.
