BER rating scale

A building energy rating (BER) is similar to the energy label for a household electrical appliance. The label has a scale of A-G, with A-rated buildings the most energy efficient and G the least. BER was created as a tool to help monitoring and improving building energy efficiency. In relation to dwellings, the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland states that "A BER is an indication of the energy performance of a home. It covers energy use for space heating, water heating, ventilation and lighting calculated on the basis of standard occupancy."

A BER assessment and certificate may be compulsory to sell a building or shortly after its construction.
