DCLG:  Public buildings like museums, galleries, government buildings and town halls must get energy ratings - like consumer friendly fridge ratings - and display them to the public from April 2008, the Government has announced.  The changes are part of new regulations published implementing the EU's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.

By October 2008, all buildings that are constructed, sold or rented out will need to have an EPC, which will give an energy rating from A-G and recommendations on how to reduce carbon emissions. 

The government also claims that new figures show there are now more than 3,000 energy assessors in training in addition to the 1,000 Home Inspectors already trained, ‘ensuring the industry will be ready for smooth implementation of HIPs on 1 June 2007’.
