All public buildings with a total useful floor area greater than 500m2 must display a Display Energy Certificate (DEC). As the first company ever to lodge a live DEC, Stroma is ideally placed to assist public buildings in complying with this requirement of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
Stroma Tech has worked with local authorities, sovereign wealth funds, government ministries and the parliamentary estate, delivering both energy assessments and advice.
From July 2015, the DEC threshold will be reduced to 250m2, industry experts Stroma Tech is well placed to assist smaller sites and organisations requiring display energy certificates for the first time.
DECs have a greater significance for organisations, who must comply with the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, (formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment). Only by ascertaining actual energy consumption, via a DEC, can such organisations begin monitoring and managing consumption and in doing so, calculate the exact reductions achieved in terms of both carbon emissions and energy costs. We provide complementary carbon reduction consultancy (link) to assist organisations in using the DEC as a springboard for meeting targets under the CRC.
With accredited DEC energy assessors located across the UK, Stroma Tech can offer nationwide coverage and fast turnaround, all at competitive fees.
