Building Energy Ratings

Introduction to BER


The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) was transposed into Irish law on the 4th of January 2006. Article 7 of the EPBD requires that when a building is constructed, sold or rented, a BER detailing its energy consumption must be made available to the prospective buyers or tenants.

The Building Energy Rating (BER) is a system designed to give a comparative scale to a house for its energy demand and performance; it is designed to give prospective buyers or tenants information into the energy performance and potential cost differences between dwellings.
