Why ESOS compliance is essential

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 awareness of energy consumption to make it easier for businesses to act, to lower their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions across the UK.

What is ESOS phase 2?

The second phase of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is now underway. ESOS requires all large businesses to produce reports on energy usage and efficiency every four years. ESOS is a mandatory government scheme which affects up to 10,000 United Kingdom organisations.

“The Environment Agency says that 40% of organisations were non-compliant after the phase 1 deadline.”

Who is affected by ESOS?

ESOS applies to organisations for which one or more of the following criteria apply:

  • Employ 250 or more people
  • Has an annual turnover in excess of £38,937,777 and a balance sheet total in excess of £33,486,489
  • Is part of a group of UK organisations that includes at least one eligible organisation

What you need to do:

Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out ESOS assessments every four years. ESOS assessments are audits of the energy used by buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures. There are threats of large fines for non-compliance.
