Detail of outcome
The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is the UK methodology for assessing the energy and environmental performance of homes. In November 2016, government consulted on changes to how SAP assesses the energy performance of homes, to keep pace with research, innovation and technology developments. This document sets out our response to that feedback, to be reflected in the updated version of the methodology, SAP 10 (referred to as SAP 2016 within the consultation document).
The SAP assessment is used for many purposes – including compliance with Building Regulations, and to produce Energy Performance Certificates. This consultation sets out twenty areas of the methodology which are under review and seeks views on proposed changes. Comments are welcome on any part of SAP.
Technical working papers with the evidence base supporting the consultation document are via BRE.
