About Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

What is an Energy Identity Certificate (EKB)?

Energy Identity Certificate is a document by which the energy requirement and accordingly energy consumption class of a building are defined and declared. It's therefore an energy passport for buildings.

As per the Regulation for Energy Performance in Buildings, buildings constructed before 2011 are required to have Energy Identity Certificate by May 2, 2017 and new buildings constructed after 2011 are required to have it during occupancy stage.

In Energy Identity Certificate, annual energy consumption of the building is calculated in consideration of thermal insulation properties, heating/cooling system efficiency and other energy consuming ways of the building. According to this amount, the building is classified within a scale defined as “A, B, C, D, E, F and G."

"Class A" refers to highest energy efficiency while "class G" the lowest one. Most of the buildings thermally insulated as per TS 825 are "class C" in our country. Buildings classified as "B or above" in our country mainly have higher thermal insulation thicknesses compared to minimum thermal insulation thicknesses required by TS 825 standard.

An Energy Identity Certificate, as per Building Energy Performance Regulation, should be hung in a location in the building’s entrance that can be easily seen. Thus, building residents and other people who will make purchase/sale or renting transactions in the building are informed about the energy consumption and efficiency of the building. With Energy Identity Certificate, consumption values for heating, cooling, hot water, illumination and venting systems of the building as well as energy classes for them are declared.
