Energy performance of buildings: New methodologies published

Housebuilders/developers should be aware that the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has published two notices of approval setting out the calculation methodologies for expressing and calculating the energy performance of buildings in England and Wales.  The notices take effect from 15 June 2022, although some exceptions will be made for building work started, or given notice of starting, before this date.

The notice of approval of the methodologies for expressing the energy performance of buildings in England and Wales is available in full here.

The notice of approval of the methodologies of calculation of the energy performance of new buildings to demonstrate compliance with SI 2010/2214 in England can be accessed here.
