What is ESOS?
ESOS is a mandatory Government energy assessment program requiring all large businesses to undertake comprehensive audits of energy use to identify energy efficiency opportunities. Qualifying businesses must carry out an ESOS assessment at least once every four years and must notify the Environment Agency by a set deadline that they have complied with their obligations. The first deadline was 29th January 2016, Phase 2 is now underway with a deadline of 5th December 2019. At this point, all site energy and transport audits completed since 6 December 2015 will be required for compliance.
As a lead Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme Assessor, we have been extensively involved in helping numerous businesses through the ESOS process to notification of compliance.
Need help implementing energy savings identified through your ESOS assessment?
Now that the first deadline has passed you may be one of a large number of businesses who have successfully complied with ESOS and identified numerous energy saving opportunities as a result. The question now is what to do with these recommendations? Some may be relatively straightforward to implement, but to implement others you may want some help.
At BSSEC we can help you implement your energy efficiency recommendations. Our implementation work includes running trials to establish the best financial returns, project management of the technical implementation work and support for all stakeholders in the change management process.
From ESOS to ISO 50001
If you’re ESOS compliant and are looking for a way to futureproof your business against further energy regulation (ESOS and others), then ISO 50001 is the answer. This standard is awarded to businesses who have an operational energy management system in place. BSSEC has the expertise and experience to implement this system for you and to take you through a smooth transition from initial ESOS (2015) compliance to ISO 50001 certification.
