Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) are required by all “conditioned” commercial properties in Scotland over 50m2. An EPC for a commercial building will outline the energy performance of that building. EPCs will display an indication of the current carbon dioxide emissions as well as indicate potential annual emissions and energy use of the building. Additionally, an EPC will provide cost-effective improvements that could be made to the property. Commercial EPCs are valid for 10 years unless the building undergoes major modifications.
Do I need an Electrical Performance Certificate for my property in Aberdeen?
If a property owner does not provide an EPC for a commercial building it can result in a fine of 12.5% of the building’s value, up to a maximum of £5,000. These laws are enforced by local Trading Standards departments. Examples of non-domestic properties that need an EPC include offices, retail and industrial units, hotels and even residential properties that have been converted for commercial use.
The cost of a commercial EPC is dependent on the size of the property, the complexity of the construction and the intricacy of the heating or cooling systems that the property has.

An Energy Performance Certificate is a document which details the energy use of a building. It also outlines carbon dioxide emissions, fuel costs and recommends ways to enhance its current energy rating.
It is produced by a qualified Non-Domestic Energy Assessor (NDEA) for non domestic properties.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) were introduced by the Government in order to comply with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). The majority of properties in the UK will require an EPC when constructed, sold or rented out.
Properties which come under any of the following categories are exempt and do not require a Commercial EPC.
