Get a new energy certificate

To get a new energy certificate for your home, business property or a public building, you need to have it assessed.

Arrange a property assessment to get a new:

  • energy performance certificate (EPC)
  • display energy certificate (DEC) for a public building
  • air conditioning inspection certificate and report

The cost of an assessment varies by assessor and the size of the property.

After the assessment, the assessor will give you a digital copy of your certificate.

You can also view or print an existing energy certificate.
