Climate change has fast become one of the biggest areas of new legislation for most of the world’s leading economies. The number of climate change laws has risen from just 40 to almost 500 at the end of 2013, according to a study from Globe International. If the EU is to reach its target of a 40% greenhouse gas reduction by 2030, this trend is likely to continue.
Sam Fankhauser, the Co-Director of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change at the London School of Economics has said; “One of the most powerful drivers of climate legislation is the number of climate laws passed elsewhere.”
Within the UK there are many legal provisions on renewable energy, energy efficiency and low carbon research and development. In terms of improving the energy efficiency of buildings, business and building owners have to adhere to TM44 regulations. It is a legal requirement for all air conditioning units with a cooling output greater than 12Kw to undergo a TM44 air conditioning inspection.

TM44 inspections are a specialty of theirs, now a legal requirement to be carried out every five years, in order to assess if a building’s air conditioning unit is energy efficient.
