Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards

Everything you need to comply with Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) and avoid penalties. 

Meeting Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) is essential for property owners to avoid steep penalties of up to £150,000.  

EIC provides expert MEES compliance services to help property owners adhere to these legal requirements.

Navigating MEES Compliance

It’s vital to follow Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), which have been in place since April 2018.  

These standards make sure that all leased properties, whether they’re new contracts, extensions, renewals, or sub-lets, are energy efficient.  

Starting April 2023, this will also include all ongoing commercial leases. 
 

Keeping up with MEES, also known as Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS), is good for both energy savings and making your property investments worthwhile.  

Fines for Non-compliance with MEES

If you don’t follow these rules, you could face fines up to £150,000, property vacancies and a drop in property value.  

It’s really smart to be proactive about these standards to keep out of legal trouble, save money and keep property values high. 

Future MEES Updates

As of November 2019, the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is considering changes to MEES.  

EIC stays updated on these potential changes, including the proposal that by 1 April 2030, all non-domestic privately rented buildings should reach a minimum ‘B’ rating (if cost-effective) or a ‘C’ rating as an alternative option.
