Energy Performance of Buildings Certificates

Information and publications from certificates held on the Energy Performance of Buildings Register.

This quarterly series of experimental official statistics is released by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

It presents information about certificates on the energy efficiency of domestic and non-domestic buildings in England and Wales that have been constructed, sold, or let since 2008, and of larger public authority buildings recorded since 2008.

Figures are drawn from 2 datasets on the Energy Performance of Buildings Registers:

  • Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for domestic and non-domestic properties covering England and Wales
  • Display Energy Certificates (DECs) for buildings occupied by public authorities in England and Wales

Statistics cover the period from 2008 to date, with an aggregate level breakdown by England and Wales, by local authority, by property and tenure types.

The tables show data from certificates lodged on the Energy Performance of Buildings Registers since 2008, including average energy efficiency ratings, energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and fuel costs, average floor area sizes and numbers of certificates recorded.

More details about regulatory context and data quality are in Energy Performance of Buildings Certificates: notes and definitions.


These experimental official statistics are still subject to evaluation and testing. They are being published on account of their immediate value and we welcome interested parties to become involved in their development.

We would especially like to hear from users about how the information is accessed and used, so that we can better meet your needs. Please complete our short survey and let us know how we might make our statistics more useful.

Or contact us at and tell us briefly how you use the information, and how it makes a difference to your work.
