Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what evidence they have received on the influence of the introduction of energy performance certificates on the behaviour of buyers when choosing homes. [HL1419]

We have commissioned research to evaluate the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. As part of this work, the extent to which energy performance certificates have influenced the behaviour of buyers when choosing homes will be considered. The research is due to be completed in September 2009.
