Reasons to choose Wilson Browne
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (DBEIS) has published a consultation, seeking views on the implementation of a minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES) for privately rented non-domestic properties of EPC B, by 2030.
This consultation arises out of the responses to DBEIS’ 2019 consultation on a proposed future regulatory target for the non-domestic private rented sector. The responses highlighted issues with how existing MEES had been implemented and enforced in the past.
As a result of the 2019 consultation, the UK Energy White Paper 2020 confirmed that the future trajectory for non-domestic MEES will be EPC B by 1 April 2030.
The current consultation seeks views on the proposed framework for implementing the EPC B standard, with particular focus on:
- Improving the implementation and enforcement of MEES.
- Ensuring that the policy can be delivered in practice.
The consultation closes on 9 June 2021 and responses can be submitted online or by post. View the consultation here
