Minimum energy performance standards for non-domestic buildings

The Energy Act 2011 states that from 1 April 2018, it will be unlawful to let property which fails to achieve a Minimum Building Energy Performance Standard (MEPS). The Government has yet to consult on the detail or timing of the regulations required to implement MEPS, however, it is expected that the minimum standard required for England and Wales will be based on an E-rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
