EPCs and DECs start to come through

Published:  16 June, 2008

Assessment for what it believed to be the first Display Energy Certificate for a public building in the UK was carried out by Rob Molyneux of Stroma Technology.

Rob Molyneux of Stroma Technology is believed to have lodged the first Display Energy Certificate for a public building in the UK, just a few weeks after issuing the first Energy Performance Certificate for a non-domestic building.

Stroma Accreditation, a CLG-approved accreditation body for commercial and domestic energy assessments issued both the EPC and DEC for a council building in West Yorkshire.

Rob Coxon, director of Stroma Technology, says, ‘We are delighted to lodge the first DEC in the UK. However, we expect it to be the first of many. In preparation for this, we have created an operation capable of providing a one-stop shop from the initial energy assessment to lodgement.

‘Furthermore, through Stroma Accreditation, we can provide accredited training for local authorities that wish to carry out their own energy assessments. With most public buildings needing to have DECs in place by October, this could well be the cost effective route for local authorities and other landlords to achieve this.’
