A Tale of Two Buildings

01/12/2012

Are Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) a true indicator of energy efficiency?

Our report suggests they don’t tell the whole story.

Whilst not denying the value of EPCs, ‘A Tale of Two Buildings’ report emphasises the importance of measuring and achieving reductions in actual energy consumption.

Using data gathered from over 200 buildings over the past four years, we worked with JLL to measure the actual energy performance of its members' managed properties in London with surprising results.

Based on our findings, we tell the tale of two buildings with very different EPC ratings and uncover which is actually more energy efficient.
