Detail of outcome
We followed this consultation with a second launched in March 2021, which explores in more depth issues around implementation, enforcement and delivery of minimum energy efficiency standards for EPC B:
We will publish a single government response to both consultations once the latest one closes.
The government has committed to support businesses to reduce their energy use by at least 20% by 2030.
This consultation seeks views on how best to improve the energy performance of non-domestic private rented buildings through tighter minimum energy standards. Acting now to set a clear long-term trajectory to 2030 is designed to provide time and certainty to non-domestic landlords, businesses and the energy efficiency market in delivering the energy savings to support a zero-carbon future.
We have published a full Impact Assessment to support this consultation.
