Energy Performance Certification: how much is the certificate? The average cost in Italy is €120 with the highest prices in Rome and the lowest ones in Imperia

The Energy performance certification is the assessment of energy efficiency in a building: it shows the guide for the energy performance certification of the online comparator SuperMoney, which clearly explains how the efficiency assessment of a real property is performed. Each building must have a certificate that confirms the extent of energy performance which is expressed in classes A to G.

A recent research of ProntoPro.it, a portal where the demand for professional and artisanal employment meet with its supply, has calculated the cost of Energy Performance Certification in Italy, by cities of the certificate issuance: the result has shown that the average cost of such a procedure is 120.

Italians are increasingly sensitive to the Energy Performance Certification

Marco Ogliengo, CEO of ProntoPro.it, underlines that Italian consumers are very sensitive to the energy efficiency and the Certification of the real property they would like to buy, although the costs of that procedure are growing.
A great deal of Italians entrust professionals recognized by regional entities with carrying out the Certification and obtaining the certification released by ITACA, Istituto per l’Innovazione e la Trasparenza degli Appalti e la Compatibilità Ambientale (Institute for Innovation and Transparency in Government Procurement and Environmental Compatibility ) which determines the energy performance of their real property.

The overview of results of the research of ProntoPro.it on the Energy Performance Certification

Based on an analysis of figures concerning apartments of a surface of 79 m2 in twenty chief towns on the regions, Rome is the city where the energy performance certificates are the most expensive (€141) which is about 16% more than the national average.

The city of Imperia is a price leader where an energy performance certification costs “only” €104. Also the inhabitants of the city of Frosinone pay less than other Italians, as the costs of energy performance certificates are about €106, as well as those of Massa Carrara, where the certification of an average real property costs €108.

Obligatory Energy Performance Certification: what for?

For those who need to be informed, we would like to underline that the Energy Performance Certification of buildings is obligatory in case of rent, sale and receiving tax reliefs for upgrading aimed at energy saving. The importance of the Energy Performance Certification (EPC) is motivated by the need to certify the energy performance and features of a building, so that a citizen could compare them with the values provided for by law.

What does the professional in charge of energy performance certification do?

As mentioned above, theprofessional in charge of energy performance certification, must be a qualified technician: upon calculating the performance index of the global performance of the building by means of special procedures, it is possible to put forward technical recommendations aimed to improve the performance of the real property and forecast the return-on-investment period.
