When do you need a Display Energy Certificate?
A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) is required for a building with a total useful floor area of over 1,000 square meters, that is occupied by a public authority or an institution that provides a public service to a large number of persons and is therefore visited by those persons. The certificate is valid for one year and the accompanying Advisory Report is valid for seven years.
A DEC shows the actual energy usage of a building, the Operational Rating, and it helps the public to see the energy efficiency of the building. It is based on the energy consumption recorded by gas, electricity and other meters. A DEC should be clearly displayed at all times and clearly visible to the public. It is also accompanied by an Advisory Report that lists cost effective measures to improve the energy rating of the building.
