Also, from Espígul as much as real estate as construction sustainability is present in all our new construction. Sustainability is one of the pillars of our company along with innovation.

We have shown that efficiency and modernity are compatible.  

So for our company the energy efficiency certificate is important for several reasons.

First, it provides clear and objective information about the energy consumption of a building, allowing owners and users to know its efficiency and make informed decisions to reduce its environmental impact and energy costs. It also raises awareness of the importance of energy efficiency and promotes measures to improve it.

Must the energy performance certificate be registered to be valid?

Yes, the energy efficiency certificate must be registered for it to be valid. The certificate is registered with the competent body of each autonomous community or region, according to the legislation in force. Without registration, the certificate is not legally valid.

When is the energy performance certificate mandatory?

The energy efficiency certificate is mandatory in different situations, such as the sale or rental of a property, both in homes and commercial premises. It is also necessary in cases of construction of new buildings and in certain important reforms that affect the thermal envelope or the air conditioning systems. Specific laws and regulations may vary by country or region, so it is important to consult the applicable local regulations.

<b>Who can make an energy efficiency certificate? </b>

The energy efficiency certificate must be carried out by a technician competent in the field of energy and energy efficiency. In many countries, this technician is required to be an architect, engineer or professional with specific training in the field of energy efficiency of buildings. It is important to have a qualified professional to ensure the accuracy and validity of the certificate.

<b>How is an energy efficiency certificate registered? </b>

The registration process for an energy performance certificate varies according to the legislation of each country or region. Usually, the required certificate and documentation must be submitted to the designated competent body, which is usually the local government department responsible for energy or housing. The body shall verify the documentation and make the corresponding registration by assigning a registration number to the certificate.

<b>How long is the energy performance certificate valid? </b>

The validity of the energy performance certificate may also vary by country or region. In general, the certificate is valid for several years, usually between 5 and 10 years. After that period, it is necessary to renew the certificate and carry out a new energy efficiency assessment of the property. It is important to consult the applicable local regulations to know the exact duration of the validity of the certificate in each case.

<b>Our involvement in sustainability</b>

In the context of the climate emergency, the energy efficiency certificate becomes more relevant. Buildings are responsible for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions, due to their energy consumption for heating, cooling and hot water supply. Improving the energy efficiency of buildings reduces CO2 emissions and contributes to mitigating climate change.

In addition, the energy efficiency certificate promotes the transition to a more sustainable and low carbon economy. By qualifying and labeling buildings according to their energy efficiency, the demand for efficient buildings is encouraged and investment in energy improvements in the construction sector is encouraged. This not only reduces emissions, but also creates economic opportunities and jobs in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

It is a fundamental tool in the fight against the climate emergency. It provides key information for decision-making, promotes energy efficiency and contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. By driving the transition to more sustainable buildings, it plays an important role in mitigating climate change and building a more environmentally friendly future.

In real estate Espígul we want to contribute in leaving a more sustainable world and for this reason in our promotions of flats and houses will always be present materials and systems to reduce energy and money.
