Research project to inform a buildings energy rating policy

In October 2019, the Government told the Climate Change Committee that it would consult on introducing a new policy that would rate commercial and industrial buildings based on their actual energy consumption and carbon emissions. The policy is currently being developed by BEIS and the Government aims to publish a consultation shortly.

To inform the development of the policy, the Government has commissioned a consortium of Winning Moves, UCL and Verco to lead a research project during February and March 2021. The research will aim to build on the existing evidence base around metering in large commercial and industrial buildings, and other aspects of introducing a new policy to the non-domestic building stock.

If Verco staff get in touch with you about the research, BEIS would appreciate your support to help inform the development of the policy.

Any general concerns or questions for the research team can be directed to
