Proposed amendments to the Energy Rating of Dwellings assessment procedure
Energy efficiency regulations are continuing to evolve, with the latest version of the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) having been published in July 2018, following a consultation process launched in November 2016. The SAP10 document incorporates a number of changes to the procedure and background figures, intended to more accurately reflect the energy consumption of dwellings and adapt the methodology to a changing environment and wider energy system.
AES Sustainability Consultants has reviewed and analysed the proposed document in order to get a clear picture of the potential impact on the housebuilding industry. The documents below provide an overview and impact assessment based on what we currently know. It is anticipated that a consultation on revisions to Part L of the Building Regulations will be launched in Spring 2019 and the amended methodology would be adopted following the conclusion of this process.
