A new policy that would rate commercial and industrial buildings based on their actual energy consumption and carbon emissions is currently being developed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Government. The Government aims to publish a consultation shortly.

To inform the development of the policy, the Government has commissioned a consortium of Winning Moves, UCL and Verco to lead a research project during February and March 2021. The research will aim to build on the existing evidence base around metering in large commercial and industrial buildings, and other aspects of introducing a new scheme to the non-domestic building stock.

The UCL team includes Professor Paul Ruyssevelt, Dr Kathryn Janda, and Rayan Azhari.
