Reissued October 2022

This practice information provides a comprehensive review of the issues that connect values in the residential sector to energy efficiency. It enables valuers to better understand the impacts of energy efficiency on the value and/or liquidity of residential buildings.
It considers the role of the valuer and how, through their data collection and reporting processes, they can play a part in promoting a more energy-efficient housing stock.
To achieve these aims, the document reviews the context within which energy efficiency is rising up the European regulatory agenda and the impact that this is having on value drivers.

This document was reissued in October 2022 as practice information. It had previously been published in March 2019 as an insight paper entitled Energy efficiency and residential values: a changing European landscape. No material changes have been made to the document.
