Energy Performance Certificates
What is the EPC Certificate?
According to directives of the European Union (2010/31/EΕ- effective as of January 9, 2011 when selling/conveying and of July 9, 2012 when renting regardless its surface), the Greek government was obliged to introduce new legislation, regarding energy efficiency of buildings, with the prospect of promoting new and smart technologies that may reduce energy consumption, 40 per cent of which alone applies to buildings.
As a result of that, the procedure of building energy efficiency inspection was enacted, which includes the assessment of major building features such as external wall insulation, domestic boiler, hot water tank, radiators, windows for double glazing, hvacs and so on.
The final result of these calculations are depicted on the EPC document making an assessment of the amount of energy a building consumes, which is then rated on a 9 grade scale from A+ to H, A+ being the highest and most efficient. The inspector makes appropriate recommendations with cost-effective improvements for the lower rated buildings which are noted on the issued certificate; owners are not obliged to follow these.
The EPC document is valid for ten years upon its issue date.
