The Property Energy Professionals Association (PEPA) is a trade body which represents companies that are engaged in the provision of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Display Energy Certificates (DECs).  Members of the Association are primarily composed of the Accreditation companies that oversee Energy Assessors in the production of EPCs and DECs.

EPCs have now become central to the building sales and lettings process, with all properties requiring one.  They are also intrinsic to various Government initiatives such as Green Deal, ECO, ESOS, Section 63, Building Regulations, Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed in Tariff (FIT).

PEPA works closely with the various government departments i.e. Department for Communities Local Government (DCLG) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), with particular reference to the association’s objectives. Other bodies that PEPA works with include Ofgem, Energy Saving Trust (EST), British Energy Efficiency Federation (BEEF), Gemserv, and are represented on various working groups.

PEPA is dedicated to a quality agenda and in working with all interested parties and stakeholders to ensure EPCs and DECs have increased visibility, are regarded as important, and they act as a catalyst in improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
