ESOS Phase 2 Has Started

What is ESOS and who does it apply to?

High energy costs and tighter regulations governing energy usage are just a couple of the challenges facing the UK’s business sector.  The aim behind the Energy Saving and Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), is for UK companies to become more transparent about their energy consumption; which in turn, will identify ways for an organisation to not only reduce their energy consumption, but to reduce their energy costs as well.

ESOS is a mandatory energy efficiency scheme targeted at all large UK organisations who meet one of more of the following criteria:

  • It employs 250 or more people
  • It has an annual turnover in excess of 50 million euros or an annual balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euros

Now in it’s second phase, companies are being urged to adhere to the compliance deadline of 5th December 2019.

Get the maximum benefit from the ESOS compliance process with the SMARTech energy consultancy service

Significant energy savings can be identified through ESOS and many organisations have found that going beyond environmental compliance makes good business sense – treating it as an opportunity to not only reduce their energy costs, but ultimately, to save money on their bottom line.
