Start working towards ESOS Phase 2 compliance now
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. Find out more about ESOS here.
We are now in Phase 2 of the ESOS compliance scheme. Phase 2 requires organisations that fall within its remit to take the following steps by December 5th 2019:
1. Measure your total energy consumption across your buildings, transport and industrial activities.
2. Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations.
3. Report compliance to their national scheme administrator.
Environment Agency approved Lead Assessors
Participants in ESOS must have a qualified Lead Assessor to undertake various roles in relation to their ESOS Assessment. Carbon Numbers has an approved lead assessor that can cater for all your ESOS requirements.
ESOS Energy Audits
The ESOS Energy Audit is one of the four routes to compliance identified by the government, and must be undertaken or overseen and signed off by a qualified ESOS Lead Assessor.
ISO 50001 certification
ISO 50001 requires early action, as it often takes well over a year for companies to implement a best practice energy management system and achieve certification.
