Energy Performance Certificates
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) provide prospective buyers/ tenants with information about the energy performance of a building and practical advice on improving performance. Cost effective recommendations for improving the energy performance of the building detailed on the certificate must meet the Scottish building regulations, be specific to the individual building and be technically feasible.
