Wokingham Borough Council

We provided Wokingham Borough Council with 36 non-domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and a Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) assessment in order to identify routes to achieve compliance.

Achieving compliance to MEES

Preparation of 36 EPCs

Presented routes to compliance

Challenge

  • The client was looking for a partner to assist them in understanding and assessing the various routes to comply with The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015.
  • To focus on a sample of the client’s building stock and utilise the results from these assessments to inform future decisions in relation to the remaining stock.

Solution

  • We assessed the performance and prepared EPCs for 36 of the client’s buildings.
  • Creation of an asset register.
  • Report detailing the energy, carbon and cost savings from seven potential Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) all with seven-year payback periods (as required by MEES).
    Simulations (assessments) of the seven options, packaged eleven different ways.
  • All options considered in relation to their net present value and lifetime return on investment.

Results

  • As a result of this work we were able to provide two routes to compliance.
  • The first route achieves compliance by installing the ECM recommendations on the EPCs, but may not necessarily result in all buildings achieving an EPC rating of E.
  • The second route achieves compliance by installing ECMs which will result in all buildings achieving a rating of E.
“Sustain have delivered a quality programme of 36 EPCs with costed options appraisal for achieving compliance with the MEES as well as an attractive return on investment. They are really easy to work with and always deliver against project objectives. I look forward to continuing to work with them on improving the performance of our buildings.”- Ian Gough - Energy Officer, Wokingham Borough Council
