The Energy Performance Certificate (ΠΕΑ) is a recognized document issued by an energy inspector and captures the energy performance of the building. The ΠΕΑ ranks each building in an energy category while the Inspector records recommendations for improving its energy efficiency.
The issuing of an Energy performance certificate is required for:
- For all buildings of basic uses (residence, permanent and holiday, offices, commercial uses, education, temporary residence, health, social welfare etc.)
- For every sale-purchase of a single building
- For sale-purchase of a building department
- For rent (apartment, residence, business area, etc.)
What information is listed on the Energy Performance Certificate?
- General details of the building (eg address)
- The estimated annual total consumption of the primary energy of the building or building unit
- the PEA registration number, which is unique for each building or building unit
- The annual energy consumption per energy source.
- The end use of the annual energy consumption.
- The actual final annual energy consumption.
- The total number of annual carbon dioxide emissions.
- Recommendations for interventions to improve the energy efficiency of the building, which are prepared by the energy inspector.
- The name of the energy inspector who issued the energy certificate.
- The description of the software used to make the version of the PEA.
How long is the Energy Efficiency Certificate?
The energy certificate (EPC) is valid for ten (10) years. However, in case of a complete renovation of the building before the end of the decade, we must proceed again with the issuance of a new energy certificate.
The ΠΕΑ version is obligatory for the inclusion of residential buildings in the “energy saving at home” program.
