The Carbon Trust Guide to ESOS: UK Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme
Will your business be affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations? This guide explains what’s required to comply, and how to take advantage of the opportunity in the scheme.
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) requires all large businesses in the UK to undertake mandatory assessments looking at energy use and energy efficiency opportunities at least once every four years. The ESOS Regulations 2014 bring into force Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive.
The deadline for the first compliance period is 5 December 2015. This means that before this date businesses that meet the qualification criteria will have to achieve compliance with the regulations and notify the scheme administrators, the Environment Agency.
