Answer for Energy Performance Certificates

Answered By:

GLA officers have not met with Trading Standards to discuss the enforcement of Energy Performance Certificates and Display Energy Certificates. However, I have asked London Councils to contact local authorities to understand the opportunities to enforce. The GLA has checked the progress of Display Energy Certificates for GLA Group buildings. The GLA, MPS, LDC, TfL, and LFB all have DECs in place for buildings that are over 250m2 and are frequently visited by the public.

The GLA's focus is on retrofitting existing buildings through my RE:NEW and RE:FIT programmes.
