EPC data ownership constraint

Hello! I was wondering whether you could expand on the note made in the sustainability Data categories section about why Royal Mail owned EPC data cannot be used.
On their website says

Research to provide data, analysis and statistics intended to improve the understanding of energy efficiency of buildings or to facilitate innovation and improvement in use, design, materials and equipment to this end.

This seems like something colouring.london would be enabling, but I imagine you can’t control how people use the data on the site?
