The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero writes:

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is the methodology currently used by the government to estimate the energy performance of homes across the United Kingdom. It is of critical importance to the delivery of our housing and climate change objectives.

The Home Energy Model will replace the SAP for the energy rating of dwellings. It is still under development and we will implement the first version alongside the Future Homes Standard in 2025.

We are consulting on the Model while it is still at a formative stage, so that industry can participate in the development process.  This consultation:

  • summarises the development and validation work undertaken to date
  • invites feedback to enable further model development in advance of its introduction.

We will also hold a series of engagement events throughout the consultation period: email to find out more.

The consultation will be of interest across the built environment sector.
