PAS 2030 standard revised by BSI

BSI, the British Standards company has revised the PAS 2030:2017 Specification for installation of energy efficiency measures in existing buildings.

The PAS specifies requirements for the installations of energy efficiency measures in an existing building, whether the building is commercial or residential.

This revised PAS was sponsored by BEIS Home Energy and supports the Energy Company Obligation, the government energy efficiency scheme to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.

This change has been prompted by a legislation change relating to energy efficiency and to meet the requirements of suppliers and users of energy efficient measures.

The revised PAS 2030 is also recognised in the recently published Each Home Counts Review, which includes a recommendation for development of a quality mark in the domestic retrofit sector.

The revised PAS includes requirements for installation processes, process management and service provision. It also includes criteria relating to installation methods, equipment, tools, product or system and material suitability. The commissioning of installed measures and the training, skills and competence of the people undertaking such installation, is also covered by PAS 2030.

Ant Burd, BSI’s head of market development for built environment, said: “ Older buildings are typically much less energy efficient than newly constructed buildings, increasing costs for home occupiers and business alike. PAS 2030 provides a dedicated specification for anyone who wants to install energy efficiency measures into and existing building, whether that building is a Victorian warehouse or a two bedroom apartment built in the 1990’s.”

The revised PAS does not include requirements relating to the certification of PAS 2030 compliance by independent third parties, which is covered by PAS 2031.
