Energy Assessment

Standard Assessment Procedure& EPC

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is the Government approved method for producing home energy ratings and allows developers and builders to demonstrate the energy efficiency of the new homes they build. Since 1st April 2006 a SAP calculation, compliant with part L1 of Building Regulations has been required for all new dwellings under European and UK legislation.

If you have built or are planning to build a new dwelling, then Part L of the Regulations states that you must now obtain a SAP rating for that dwelling. SAP assessments calculate a CO2 emission rating for the building. It is this rating that is submitted to Building Control for all new dwellings and which must meet the latest Building Regulation standards for energy efficiency.

Simplified Building Energy Model

The Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) is a government approved software tool that provides an analysis of a building's energy consumption. SBEM calculates monthly energy use and carbon dioxide emissions of a building given a description of the building geometry, construction, use, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting equipment

If you have built or are planning to build a new non-domestic building, then Part L of the Regulations states that you must now have an SBEM calculation performed on that building. SBEM is used to calculate a CO2 emission rating for the building. It is this rating that is submitted to Building Control and which must meet the latest Building Regulation standard for energy efficiency.
