Regulations published by the Minister of Mineral resources and Energy under section 19(1)(b) of the National Energy Act now require the mandatory submission and display of an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for buildings that fall under Notice 700 of Government Gazette 43792 of the 8th December 2020.

Owners of buildings greater than 2000sqm are required to display an EPC at the entrance to their building by 31 December 2022. An EPC is valid for 5 years and quantifies and displays the Energy performance of any building as the nett energy consumed in kilowatt-hours per square metre (kWh/sqm) and which includes heating, hot water, cooling, ventilation and lighting. This is an attempt to develop a national benchmark for buildings. All EPC’s must be submitted to the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) who is Government’s appointed and mandated custodian.

– Introduce mandatory requirements for the display of EPCs in non residential buildings.
– Advise on the EPC Accreditation process.
