What to expect from your Energy Assessor?

ecmk is a leading Government approved accreditation body for energy professionals. All energy assessors must be accredited, proving that they are fully qualified to carry out domestic or commercial property assessments. We provide accreditation under the following specialisms – Domestic, Non-Domestic, Display Energy Certificates (for public buildings), Retrofit and Legionella Risk Assessments.

When using ecmk accredited energy assessors, you’ll have the assurance that they are:

  • Fully trained, qualified and verified to carry out work in your home
  • Equipped with access to the latest software to carry out assessments
  • Backed with support and expertise from their accreditation scheme
  • Compliant and working to the latest regulations and industry standards
  • Audited by their accreditation scheme to check competence of their work


An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for properties when constructed, sold or let. The EPC provides details on the energy performance of the property and what you can do to improve it.
