Whilst I like to think I do my bit to be green - I am not sure I understand the need for this however it is now law.

I think they are just covering the bases here.
You need one when you sell a property and to do a long term rental although why a holiday short let would need one as the fuel bills would be included in the holiday let. And I doubt the question 'what is the insulation and double glazing like' is very high on anybody list of holiday questions.
Will we see the glossy brochures advertising how warm and toasty the room is with its triple glazing and cavity wall insulation? But the pool is unfortunately a bus ride away.

Just seems a way of getting more cash and maybe driving the more unscrupulous and fake renters away.
Forcing renters to have carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms would have been a better thing to do.

Yes, I agree, it has never been top of my priorities when I rent a holiday let.

Still, if and when the owner sells it then a certificate will be useful and as you say obligatory.

Amazing how many properties are advertised for sale - with the comment energy certificate to follow!
