Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
ESOS Energy Assessments & Compliance Get Expert Help with The ESOS Energy Assessment Scheme
What is ESOS?
For qualifying organisations, ESOS compliance is mandatory. ESOS is designed to encourage larger organisations to identify energy savings by means of an energy assessment. Similar to a Commercial EPC as far as auditing the energy efficiency of buildings, ESOS goes much further into the overall energy consumption of the organisation. Specifically, the ESOS audit takes into consideration the energy used by industrial processes and transport to give a wider overall picture of where energy savings can be made.
ESOS audits must be carried out every 4 years by a fully qualified ESOS Assessor. The ESOS assessor will calculate your total energy consumption and highlight how your energy is consumed. The ESOS report will also indicate where within your organisation you can cost-effectively reduce your energy consumption.
Part of the ESOS compliance states that you must also notify the Environment Agency that you comply with the ESOS scheme and keep records pertaining to ESOS.
Do You Qualify for ESOS?
Your organisation falls under the ESOS scheme if you;
- Have more than 250 employees
- Have an annual turnover of €50m & have an annual balance sheet showing €43m.
Under the ESOS definition, if your organisation meet one of the above you’re considered as a large undertaking and as such you must comply with ESOS. However, if your organisation has ISO 50001 accreditation you don’t need to have an accredited assessor audit your organisation but you do need to register your compliance with the Environmental Agency.
