Energy Assessment (6361)

Last Updated: 15 Nov 2016
Energy Assessment is a regulated industry in the UK and is undertaken across a number of different situations including domestic buildings, non-domestic and commercial buildings, and air-conditioning systems.

The Domestic Energy Assessor produces an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) using the most recent version of RdSAP when a building is sold or let, and an accredited Assessor can deal with both the sales and lettings markets. The Non-Domestic Energy Assessor collects data on dimensions, construction, heating and hot water provision of commercial and non-commercial buildings in order to produce an EPC using the Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM). The Air-Conditioning Energy Assessor undertakes mandatory inspections of all air conditioning systems with rated outputs of over 12kw at intervals not exceeding 5 years.

Domestic and Non-Domestic Energy Assessment forms part of the Green Deal Advisor qualification. Individuals that currently hold the DEA or NDEA qualifications can 'upskill' to Green Deal Advice.
Anyone interested in energy efficiency and working, or looking for work, as an energy assessor in the construction sector.
