Achieve ESOS Compliance

ISO 50001 Energy Efficiency

Let’s cut to the chase.

You’re here because you need to achieve ESOS compliance and we’re here because we can make that happen for you.

Our Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) compliance audits highlight all the areas of your business that require attention and will guide the work to ensure your business objectives are met and compliance is achieved.

What is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme or ESOS?

This is the boring but necessary bit…

ESOS is a mandatory compliance scheme brought in by the UK government, as part of Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, in order to help reduce energy consumption in the EU by 20% by 2020.  Your business qualifies for ESOS if you have 250 employees or more, turnover of more than 50 million euros or an annual balance sheet total of more than 43 million euros.

You can read more about it and find out if you qualify for ESOS here.

If you do qualify for ESOS, then you will be required to carry out ESOS assessments every four years. These audits will be looking at the energy used by your buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify any cost-effective energy saving measures.

There are several routes for compliance, for example if you’re fully covered by ISO 50001 then you don’t need to carry out ESOS assessments as your business is covered by the ISO standard.


Do more than comply with Phase 1 and Phase 2 ESOS

Complying is great, but it doesn’t really get you anywhere. It’s very carrot and stick, with the stick here being fines for not participating in ESOS.

We want to talk about the carrot.

ESOS audits are a great way to identify potential efficiency measures that can save your business some real money. Forget about fines, we can help your business operate more efficiently giving you lower overheads thanks to ongoing reduced energy costs.

 Put the two together, and if you’re not already taking steps to comply with ESOS then you really should.
