Display Energy Certificates (DECs)

Display Energy CertificateBuildings accessed by the public, that receive funding from the public sector, with a floor area of 250 m2 or above are likely to require a valid Display Energy Certificate (DEC) to be in place. A DEC must be accompanied by a valid Recommendation Report which contains recommendations for improved energy efficiency and energy performance of the building. There are slight variances on the requirements depending on the size of the buildings, as detailed below.

Buildings Over 1000 m2

To comply with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, valid Display Energy Certificates must be displayed in a prominent location, and the Recommendation Report be available to review upon request. Organisations failing to adhere face a fine of £1,500.
