Older Buildings & the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
42% of the UK's carbon footprint is somehow attributable to the built environment with 10% coming from heating buildings alone. Encouraging landlords and property owners to improve the energy efficiency of buildings is therefore great in theory, but the recently updated Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) pose challenges, particularly when it comes to older buildings. We teamed up with STBA on 26th November to give members the low down on what the changes to the regulations are, the associated challenges, and how to respond to MEES practically.
