Consultation Announced; Improving the Energy Performance of Privately Rented Homes

Posted on November 26th, 2020

The government are seeking views on proposals around raising energy performance standards for the domestic private rented sector in England and Wales.

This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 30 December 2020.

Consultation description

The government has committed to upgrade as many private rented sector homes as possible to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030, where practical, cost-effective and affordable.

This consultation sets out a suite of policy proposals towards achieving this. These proposals will bring significant benefits to landlords, tenants and our environment including:

  • reducing energy bills and increased comfort for tenants and supporting delivery of our statutory fuel poverty target of EPC C by 2030
  • potential property value improvements for landlords
  • delivering carbon emission savings over Carbon Budgets 4 and 5, making progress towards our net zero target
