Case Study Background
In preparation for the incoming changes to Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) 1st April 2023 requiring all commercial units to have an EPC rating of E or higher in order to continue to let, or eligible for letting on the market, many of TPT’s clients have been obtaining new EPCs across their network. The procurement of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) are included as an additional services to the portfolio management contracts of both the Core Valley Lines (CVL) and Wales &Borders Network. Both Transport for Wales and Transport for Wales Rail instructed TPT to procure 86 EPCs across their commercial estates.
- TPT reviewed the commercial estate and identified the sites where an EPC would be required
- TPT worked with the contractor to set up a joint schedule allowing both clients to save on costs
- TPT completed a review of both estates for all existing EPCs
TPT compiled the new EPCs and existing EPC’s into one comprehensive report on the estate, noting the expiration dates and sites which will require improvement before 2027.
- Both clients have their estates fully up to date with EPC ratings, and many units now all fall on the same 10 year cycle
- Both clients have a searchable spreadsheet showing EPCs
- The reports to each client included the projected changes to MEES regulations up until 2030, and identified which units will require improvements
- Any sites with poor or failing ratings were identified, and TPT worked with the client to identify next steps in order to ensure a fully MEES compliant estate
The CVL estate is fully compliant with MEES regulations
