JLL and BBP Report

Are Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) a true indicator of energy efficiency?

​Our latest report suggests they don’t tell the whole story.

Whilst not denying the value of EPCs, ‘A Tale of Two Buildings’ report from JLL and Better Buildings Partnership (BBP) emphasises the importance of measuring and achieving reductions in actual energy consumption.

Using data gathered from over 200 buildings over the past four years, JLL has worked with BBP to measure the actual energy performance of its members' managed properties in London with surprising results.

Based on our findings, we tell the tale of two buildings with very different EPC ratings and uncover which is actually more energy efficient.

Download the report to see the results.

The report also considers:

  • Are EPC's alone sufficient to deliver the Government's targets to 'de-carbonise' the UK's built environment?
  • How successfully is the property industry tackling the issue of reducing actual energy consumption?
  • What do we do now? Recommendations and guidance for both owners and occupiers.


Watch the video below to discover why measuring actual performance is key.
