British New Home E-rating Required

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

Beginning in January of this year, all new homes sold in England and Wales have to display energy ratings. The ratings are required by the revised Building Regulations and Approved Inspectors Regulations 2000, which was formally approved last October. Home ratings are based on the Standard Assessment Procedure for Energy Rating of Dwellings and are expressed on a scale of 1 to 100—the higher the number, the more energy-efficient the home. Separate regulations apply in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
