Stroma Certification would like to advise you that DCLG has released data relating to all EPCs lodged up to the end of December 2016. This release is part of the government’s commitment to making data available to the public for all energy certificates following a review by the Information Commissioner.
There is significant value to the data for parties including local authorities, researchers and energy assessors involved in the energy performance of buildings. The government believes that it is in the public’s interest to make this information more readily available for these purposes.
The data release includes most data collected but the energy assessor for each report, along with current and potential ratings and recommendations.
Access to the data is free and requires users to complete a simple registration process, which is required for each session of access.
Please note that all EPCs are contained within the data, with the exception of those that have been marked as ‘not for issue’ and those where the occupant of a property has opted out of having the data published.
Stroma Certification would like to take this opportunity to remind all members that any EPCs or DECs that are known to be incorrect, and/or have been replaced must be marked as ‘not for issue’ via the Stroma Certification cancellation process. Failure to do this will result in incorrect data appearing in this dataset which is now visible and could be queried by a stakeholder.
If you wish to access the data that is available to view, please visit the EPBD portal and follow the sign up process.
Stroma Certification would like to stress that anyone who accesses the data, must do so with full compliance of the Data Protection Act 1998, and a link to this is provided on the DCLG website.
Stroma Certification welcomes this release of data as this will assist in future government led regulations, projects and schemes, as well as providing useful data to related industries.
