Details

This privacy impact assessment sets out how the department is considering privacy issues in the context of enabling more open access to data held on the Energy Performance of Buildings domestic and non-domestic Registers through amendments which are being made to the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012.

The government has made a commitment to greater transparency of information held by public authorities, and the publication of energy performance of buildings data will provide opportunities for researchers, businesses and other interested parties to maximise the economic, social and environmental benefits for the UK.
