Fit for the Future and STBA are collaborating to bring you and event which explores the practical responses to MEES. The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards for properties in the private rented sector were introduced in April of this year. These regulations are particularly challenging for owners and managers of portfolios of older buildings – especially as MEES are based around EPCs and these often do not accurately reflect the performance of solid-walled and other traditionally-constructed buildings – both domestic and non-domestic.
We will begin with an update from BEIS on the regulations themselves, then show how some portfolio owners have developed practical responses to meet these targets, and explore the inconsistencies between reducing energy use and improving EPC scores. Just as importantly, we want to hear from you, to record the challenges you are facing so that we can communicate these to government, and for you to share the solutions you are implementing, so there will be two contributory sessions to ensure that everyone attending has the chance to speak and raise issues.
