Home energy rating scheme set to be modernised

05.05.2022

Building Research Establishment (BRE) has announced it will developing a new methodology to better measure the energy performance of homes in the UK.

The BRE will be developing a new version of the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) - the government’s current system for assessing and comparing the energy rating of homes - as part of a three-year project.

‘Sap 11’ will be better suited to modern technologies such as heat pumps, renewables, and smart tech and in hand, help to decarbonise the UK’s housing stock. This will allow both the government and industry to better measure and understand energy performance.

This new approach is anticipated as part of the Future Homes Standard – a set of measures set to be introduced on new homes built from 2025. An initiative to ensure new homes are fitted with low-carbon forms of heating, in accordance with the UK’s drive towards net-zero.
