Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS)

Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS)
About:


Definition:

The Energy Act 2011 saw the introduction of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for commercial buildings, which will tighten minimum energy efficiency requirements.

From April 2018 it will be unlawful to rent business premises that do not meet the new minimum threshold envisaged to be an EPC rating of E.


Relevance to Sustainable Construction:

We might see an improvement on existing building stock


Opinion:

Does this match, conflict or compete with CRC Carbon Reduction Committment requirements?

A lot of properties need to be refurbished to this very poor performance level.

What happend after 2018?

UK gets out of EU to avoid the fines for not meeting Carbon targets? Probably.

EPCs of D, C, B, A

How many refurbishments will it take to get to low demand buildings? 4 More?

How many refurbishements will it take to get insulation levels to meet real Carbon targets?
