DECs to be rolled out on all non-domestic buildingsApril 2010

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are set to apply to all non-domestic buildings.

Paul King, Chief Executive UK-GBC

The government has published a consultation paper which sets out proposals for extending DECs to all non-domestic buildings.

The UK Green Buildings Council (UK-GBC) says it is "delighted" that government is "committed to examine phasing out the worst performing buildings." Paul King, chief executive of the UK Green Building Council, said: "Phasing out the worst performing buildings by setting minimum energy standards is essential."

"There comes a point when...a building cannot be leased or sold without major improvements. The industry needs clarity on future requirements and this helps give certainty on which investment decisions can be based," he added.
