ESOS Phase 2 – are you ready?
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme set up by the government to ensure large businesses contribute to its energy reduction targets. It is now in Phase 2 of the scheme. Find out more about ESOS.
The deadline for Phase 2 compliance is December 5th 2019. Organisations that do not comply by this date are subject to fines of up to £50,000 and public disclosure of noncompliance.
Does it apply to me?
It applies to you if your organisation meets one or more of the following criteria:
- Employs over 250 members of staff in the UK
- Has an annual turnover of over 50 million Euros (£38,937,777) and an annual balance sheet total of over 43 million Euros (£33,486,489)
- The company is part of a larger organisation that falls into either of the above categories
The Environment Agency reported that 40% of organisations were non-compliant after the Phase 1 deadline. ESOS does not apply to public bodies.
