Green Building chief prescribes “an energy diet” for bloated property industry
That was Paul King, the chief executive of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC).
The UKGBC wants to see all non-residential buildings in the UK display their energy efficiency ratings and are campaigning to make Display Energy Certificates mandatory, starting in 2012.
Display Energy Certificates show how energy efficient buildings are, and are based on an A-G rating, A being the most efficient and G the least.
The certificates, or DEC’s as they are known, will cut costs, drive efficiency and the UKGBC want them included as part of the Energy Bill, which is currently going through Parliament.
British Land’s Justin Snoxall said: “DEC’s can play a significant role for the carbon agenda in non-domestic buildings.”
