Organisations can start working on their energy audits and identifying energy saving opportunities as Phase 2 of ESOS starts.
The Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK who employ 250 or more people or have an annual turnover of €50 million. Organisations who fail to comply with ESOS are at risk of receiving a fine of £50,000 from enforcers, along with further penalties of £500 per day for up to 80 working days.
Phase 2 of ESOS is now open; businesses can start to work on their energy audits to identify any energy savings. Although you will not be able to carry out the full assessment of your total energy consumption until the qualification date, 31 December 2018, you can start auditing your properties fleet or processes where you know the energy supply will be incorporated in your significant energy consumption.
Getting ahead of the game can help you with planning your energy audits, minimising disruption and also reduce energy costs.
As with phase 1, your audits will need to include at least one year’s energy consumption, which will fall in between the 6 December 2014 and 5 December 2019. An audit will also need to be overseen, conducted or reviewed by an ESOS Lead Assessor.
