2014 10 03: JPA Designer SAP 2012 module approved for regulations compliance and EPSs in Wales. This approval applies for version 6.02x.

2014 06 29: JPA Designer SAP 2012 module approved for regulations compliance and EPCs in England. This approval applies for version 6.01x.

2013 11 15: The absolutely final version of SAP has now been issued. This includes the notional dwelling standards for the TER and TFEE calculations. Although the Approved Documents with the TER and TFEE methodologies have not been published, previous announcements by DCLG indicate the TER will be based on emissions from the notional dwelling modified by a fuel factor, and the TFEE will be based on the notional dwelling FEE but increased by 15%.

2013 10 15: The headlines of the Part L changes have been announced and the new approved documents to part L are expected by the end of October.

The TER will now be based on a notional dwelling with fabric and services as specified in Approved Document L1A. The carbon dioxide emissions from the notional dwelling will be modified by a fuel factor, but there are no improvement factors. A dwelling built to the specified fabric standards will meet the TER.

The TFEE (Target Fabric Energy Efficiency) is calculated from the same notional dwelling as the TER, but with a 15% uplift on the resulting energy requirement.

The SAP 2012 module has a new results box for the TFEE as well as a TFEE worksheet.

2013 10 02: Following the publication of the final version of SAP 2012 (SAP 9.92) we have been developing our final SAP 9.92 module for JPA Designer. The fundamentals of the SAP rating, DFEE and DER calculations look to be working correctly, so we are now working through the BRE test examples to address the different heating systems and controls.

Currently, test examples 1a-1f match the BRE results. Version 5.04a3 build 016 will shortly be available, and will include the software developed to that point. The SAP 9.92 module does not display the TER as the full methodology for the new TER calculation has not been released.
