Understanding The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK. Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme compliance applies to large UK undertakings and their corporate groups that meet the criteria.
Large organisations are required to assess and report their energy usage every 4 years as well as to find ways to reduce their energy consumption. ESOS has now entered Phase 3 after the successful completion of ESOS Phases 1 & 2; UK businesses have until 5th June 2024 to comply with ESOS Phase 3.
The UK government estimates that the benefit of ESOS compliance to the UK after Phases 1 & 2 is approximately £1.6 billion.
