ESOS! Another mandatory requirement for energy audits

energyauditThe Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) imposes new mandatory requirements for large organisations in the UK to carry out energy audits. Failure to conduct an ESOS assessment and report compliance to the Environment Agency by 5 December 2015 can result in a £50,000 fine.

Participants must measure the total energy consumption from buildings, transport and industrial processes, so the scope is wider than the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme,  the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and Climate Change Agreements. There can also be overlap with GHG reporting obligations.

ESOS was introduced by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme Regulations 2014 which came into force on 17 July 2014. It is estimated that around 7,300 large UK enterprises occupying up to 200,000 buildings will be covered by the legislation
