Regulation 25A came into force on 9th July 2013 and states that consideration must be made of the technical, environmental and economic feasibility of using high-efficiency alternative systems; such as the following:
Decentralised Energy Supply systems based on energy from renewable sources
District Heating or Cooling
Put simply, before any work can begin on a site a feasibility study into the use of any or all of these systems must be undertaken, documented and available to the building control body to view.
Although a study must be undertaken to assess the feasibility of these options, there is no legal obligation to install any of these systems (although some local authorities will insist on these in certain instances under local planning conditions).
GreenFish consulting have years of experience within the compliance sector and have been providing these specific studies since their inception. We can provide competitive pricing for your site, either as a one-off service, or combined with our Thermal modelling and Part L Compliance services.Contact us about Regulation 25A – Consideration of High-efficiency alternative systems for new buildings
