WHAT IS ESOS?
ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for large organisations in the UK with more than 250 employees, turnover in excess of €50m and an annual balance sheet total of €43m, or companies within a group with a company of this size.
AN ESOS ASSESSMENT REQUIRES PARTICIPANTS TO DO THREE THINGS:
1. Measure total energy consumption:
Measure total energy consumption across buildings, transport and industrial activities.
2. Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations:
Ensure that at least 90% of your total energy consumption is subject to an ESOS compliant energy audit, a Display Energy Certificate, a Green Deal Assessment or a certified ISO 50001 Energy Management System during each phase of the scheme.
3. Report compliance to the Environment Agency:
Participants must notify the Environment Agency (as the scheme administrator) of compliance with the scheme. The Assessment must have been reviewed by a Board-level Director and approved by a Lead Assessor. Participants are not required to implement energy efficiency recommendations identified by their ESOS Assessments. However, they will only achieve the financial benefits that arise from avoiding energy waste if they do implement cost-effective recommendations identified.
Stage 2 of ESOS is fast approaching and all large UK businesses will be affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations.
