Costing Energy Efficiency Improvements in Existing Commercial Buildings (October 2017) Full Report




Full Report

Since the publication of the 2012 IPF report on the costs of making energy efficiency improvements to existing commercial buildings, there has been substantial regulatory and technological change. Most notable among these is the introduction of minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) for leased property, which comes into force in April 2018. 

This most recent report extends the scope of previous work. It not only looks at the value of a broad range of energy efficiency measures to upgrade the energy performance of base line buildings have been assessed but includes new strategies to reflect current market standards and the report includes system-specific recommendations and predictions of actual energy savings together with guidance for planning for the future.

A excel file is also available to permit modelling of various scenarios, based on the six generic building types that have been used in each of the three studies, to illustrate the impact of the various improvement packages.
