What is a 'Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA)'?

Predicted energy assessments are for new build homes. Normally, when a home is designed, a “target energy rating” based on the design is produced to show a building inspector that the property will meet requirements under Part L of the Building Regulations. The final energy performance of the property must achieve at least this target energy rating to receive its final sign-off from the building inspector.

Given the importance of providing energy efficiency information to the prospective buyer, this existing process will be used to produce a predicted energy assessment. Please note that when a property is complete a full Energy Performance Certificate will be provided by the developer (See Energy Performance Certificate here).
