The Government does not routinely hold or collect data to identify public buildings that are frequently visited by the public and which require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC) under the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations. DECs are not required to record information that identifies a building as being occupied or used by a Government Department and frequently visited by the public. Therefore, this Department has not made an assessment of the number of buildings used or occupied by Government Departments that have a DEC.

Data on DECs for buildings occupied by public authorities over a certain size threshold and frequently visited by the public can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-energy-performance-of-buildings-certificates (Table DEC1).
