The UK has announced a package to increase energy efficiency in households. The Home Energy Saving Programme will help households save €350 a year on energy costs. Legislation introduced under the programme requires energy companies to invest over €1 billion to make homes more energy efficient. This programme will provide funding to both the existing Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) scheme, and the new Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP).

SBEM was developed by BRE, on behalf of the UK government, as the default energy calculation tool for non-domestic buildings under the EPBD National Calculation Methodology. It is used a) in demonstrating compliance with minimum performance standards under building regulations, b) for calculating an asset rating as an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), c) as a policy support tool under, for example, the Energy Efficiency Directive. It is currently used in all countries of the United Kingdom, and in Ireland, Cyprus, Malta and Gibraltar.
