A DEC is required for any public building over 250m2 frequently visited by the public. It and will indicate the relative energy efficiency of the property based upon actual energy usage. The DEC will be issued after an inspection by a qualified DEC (OR) energy assessor. The certificate produced will contain the following information: Details of your property, its address, date of report and property size in square metres; A table with headline performance ratings calculated in terms of the average energy use per square metre of floor area showing your property compared to a typical property of its type and size; A table showing this years performance relative to previous years; There is also an associated Advice Report containing Recommended measures to improve the building's performance and management. These may typically include changes to lighting, openings and in management practices. It will not state the cost of these improvements - which will vary according to the cost of local labour and the materials used - but it will band them into low, medium and high cost relative to the typical payback period. In addition to the Advisory Report a full technical table listing of the property can be provided at no extra charge. The DEC will measure overall energy efficiency using OR (Operational Ratings), which takes account of the size of the property, its structure, insulation, heating, etc but concentrates heavily on the utility bills and the fuel used.
