The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) to include the energy performance of a building calculated according to a methodology based on the general framework in the directive's annex and reference values such as current legal standards and benchmarks.

The directive also requires EPCs to be accompanied by recommendations for the cost-effective improvement of energy performance.
