The Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory government scheme which affects up to 10,000 United Kingdom organisations.
The scheme has been designed to increase industry’s awareness of energy consumption to make it easier for businesses to take action, to lower their energy bills and lower the rate of carbon emissions across the UK.
Who is affected?
ESOS applies to large organisations that:
- Employ 250 or more people
- Has an annual turnover in excess of £38,937,777
- Balance sheet total in excess of £33,486,489
Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out ESOS assessments every four years.
These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures.
There are threats of large fines for non-compliance.
What we can do to help
We are currently in phase 2 of ESOS which must be completed by 5th December 2019 which means we can help you to start working on your energy audits and identification of energy savings opportunities now.
This service can be added on to an energy audit with SORT. We can complete an ESOS assessment of a building which can be included in the SORT.
The audit will involve looking at how your business uses energy, including how energy is used in buildings, transport and industrial operations based on an analysis of energy data and site survey.
Audits will need to be repeated every four years. Organisations must then notify the Environment Agency by a set deadline that they have complied with their ESOS obligations.
We can help you through the ESOS maze, with access to auditors and Lead Assessors to deliver compliance.
We can help you and your in-house team prepare for ESOS and work effectively with your chosen Lead Assessor by:
- Measuring energy use and reducing the time to carry out site visits and audits
- Identifying energy efficiency and energy management opportunities
- Storing data to evidence ESOS compliance
“The bathrooms look much nicer for guests and the cost of the new showers and taps is covered fully by the energy and water savings they deliver. Further cost savings come from reduced maintenance and replacement needs, with the 5-year Hansgrohe guarantee of quality manufacture.My four-man team completed the project on time in the four days allocated with little or no disturbance to the running of the motel.”
"As with any big project, there were challenges but our experience in this area ensured that problems were resolved and the work was completed on time to the highest standards.”

"We also needed to work flexibly to ensure that the smooth running of the hotel was not disrupted while making sure we were invisible to the guests.”
“They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."
