Last 10th November 2021, the dataset on the energy efficiency of dwellings, environmental impact, estimated CO2 emissions, and estimated energy cost in England was released.
Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) indicates the energy efficiency of a dwelling. It is based on the dwelling's energy features, such as the materials used, the heating systems, and insulation. The data is collected by an accredited energy assessor and entered a government-approved software to generate a score for the EPC, banded from A to G, where A is the most energy-efficient.
The scores associated with each energy efficiency band are as follows:
· band A – 92 plus (most efficient)
· band B – 81 to 91
· band C – 69 to 80
· band D – 55 to 68
· band E – 39 to 54
· band F – 21 to 38
· band G – 1 to 20 (least efficient)
Here are the data from the report:
