Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards Briefings

Dear Member,

UK-GBC will be hosting member briefings in Bristol and Manchester which will explore the long-awaited Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards regulations that will make it illegal (subject to some exemptions) to let buildings that fall below an EPC rating of E.

While the central idea is simple, the final shape of the regulations is relatively complex and, due to their potentially significant impact on the sector, needs to be better understood. To some extent this is simply a matter of raising awareness of the requirements, but there is also an expectation that some of the uncertainty will be addressed through the publication of guidance to accompany the legal text.

The briefings will focus specifically on the non-domestic side of the legislation.

Date: Thursday 3 September
Time: 14:00 - 17:00

Location: Arup, 63 St Thomas Street, Avon, Bristol BS1 6JZ
