Climate legislation is already a very real business issue with the minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) in England & Wales making it unlawful for landlords to grant a new tenancy of commercial property if the EPC rating is worse than E.
From 1 April 2023, this will be extended to include existing leases making it unlawful for a landlord to continue to let commercial property.
An incremental pathway has been proposed by the UK Government that ultimately will deliver rented properties with EPC ratings of B or better.
The cost and supply of energy represents a material business risk for owners and occupiers of commercial buildings.
The accessibility and versatility of OnGen’s digital tools allows all properties within a portfolio to be assessed for their energy efficiency potential, onsite renewable energy options and a green energy supply contract. The scale of the challenge makes this absolutely imperative.
With the built environment responsible for 40% of emissions and 80% of the buildings that will exist in 2050 already built, OnGen is the perfect partner to continue on the net-zero pathway.
