From 30th June 2021, compliance with PAS 2035 and PAS 2030 became mandatory for all companies installing Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs), including domestic retrofit.
PAS 2035 is a specification for what is called the ‘whole-house’ approach to retrofit. This approach for installation of energy efficiency measures (EEMs) takes into account the requirement of the entire building, both from a technical standpoint and considering factors such as occupancy comfort.
PAS 2035 is concerned with assessing domestic dwellings for energy retrofit. This involves identifying areas where improvements can be made, then specifying and designing the relevant improvement measures. It is also concerned with the monitoring of domestic retrofit projects.
The ECO Surv platform provides Retrofit Assessors and Coordinators with an effective & structured workflow for completing PAS2035 compliant retrofit measures.
