Melaka Energy Performance Certificate (EPCert) - Alor Gajah Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Audit / Assessment
  • Status: Completed

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCert) is a scheme by the Melaka Green Technology Corporation (MGTC) and Centre for Education, Training and Research in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Green Technology (CETREE), to control over the total energy consumption of buildings in Melaka. EPCert not just only stimulating green development in Melaka, but also promoting green economy to achieve the Green City Action Plan (GCAP) target. This initiative scheme was conducted through identifying the buildings energy performance and additionally will propose a rating and labelling individual buildings. Plus, the evaluation process will also include the users’ satisfaction level and their building’s functionality.
Established in October 2016, the EPCert scheme targets on non-residential buildings and will be inflate to residential buildings in future. The pilot scheme operated on a voluntary basis and will be widely used by the local government buildings in Melaka. This scheme evaluates three basic principles such as Building Energy Index (BEI), building’s characteristics and organisation’s commitments. This will rates building energy efficiency by practising grades from seven flowers icon to one flowers icon that also known as 7-Flowers rated (‘seven flowers icon’ is the most efficient grade). In present, the certification validity period is only valid for three years and will be required to disclose during the buying or the rental process to give information (building energy performance data) to the prospective buyers or tenants.
Viewing the fact that lots of building users were not consuming energy efficiently, EPCert has planned to make sure that they will review their energy consumption and offering the top managements or building owners in every organization on the monitoring process regarding buildings energy performance. It also offers a mechanism towards prospective buyers and tenants by comparing the energy efficiency of different buildings or the energy rating across a range of similar buildings. To date, there are nine major government buildings in Melaka that had joined this programme; (i) Seri Negeri, (ii) Graha Makmur, (iii) Wisma Negeri, (iv) Putra Specialist Hospital, (v) Graha Maju, (vi) Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC), (vii) Majlis Perbandaran Alor Gajah, (viii) Melaka Sentral and (ix) Wisma Air. They had been audited from November 2016 until May 2017. Auditing process was conducted by EPCert Secretariat Member by obeying the EPCert Manual (non-residential buildings) 2016.
EPCert emphasized that building’s energy performance is not only relied on the energy efficient appliances or technology in building, but it must have a profound commitment from the building owners and users by practising the energy saving behaviour and environmental awareness.
The accreditation session was held during The Melaka Green Award Night 2017 at Equatorial Hotel Melaka on 11th August 2017. Around 650 people were there to witness the ceremony and Hon. Datuk Seri Utama Ir Hj Idris bin Hj Haron, Chief Minister of Melaka was presenting the certificate to the winners.
