Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS)

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory requirement for all large enterprises in the UK. The scheme requires recording and reporting of energy data for buildings, transport, and industrial processes over a 12-month period. Additionally, the scheme requires energy surveys accompanied by cost-effective recommendations to reduce energy demand and improve energy efficiency.

What is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)?

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory requirement for all large enterprises in the UK. It is estimated that around 10,000 organisations, covering up to 200,000 buildings, are expected to be included in ESOS.

Additionally, the scheme requires energy surveys accompanied by cost-effective recommendations to reduce energy demand and improve energy efficiency. All of the evidence gathered must be signed off by an accredited ESOS Lead Assessor.

Organisations that fail to comply with ESOS Phase 2 by the deadline date of 5th December 2019 are likely to face substantial financial penalties.
