Energy Assessment Types
Energy assessments are crucial for understanding a building’s energy performance and identifying areas for improvement. Different types of energy assessors are responsible for assessing different types of buildings.
Existing Domestic/Residential Buildings
Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) conduct energy assessments on houses, flats, and bungalows. They gather property data and information on site, which is then fed into approved software to generate an energy assessment report.
Non-Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEAs) handle energy assessments for non-domestic buildings, including offices, shops, and others. Similar to DEAs, a significant portion of their work involves on-site data collection. For assessments of new-build and complex commercial buildings, higher-level NDEA qualifications are necessary.
