ENERGY SAVINGSOPPORTUNITY SCHEME (ESOS)
What is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)?
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy audit scheme for all non-SME (small and medium enterprise) organisations. ESOS is the UK governments approach to meeting the requirements of Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive which states that all EU member states must mandate a regular energy audit programme for all large organisations.
Qualifying organisations must conduct an audit by 5th December 2015 and every four years thereafter. It is hoped that organisations will act on the recommendations produced due to corporate social responsibility and the financial benefits of saving energy.
ESOS Inclusion Criteria:
A non-SME organisation is defined as one which has:
- 250 or more employees (anyone contracted to the organisation in the UK or abroad)
- annual turnover of €50m (£38,937,777) or more
- annual balance sheet of €43m (£33,486,489) or more
At Swan Energy, our approach is to help your organisation gain the most out of ESOS. We see ESOS not as yet more red tape, but as a real opportunity to get energy efficiency on the board room agenda and reduce the amount of money that has to be spent on energy, freeing it up for investment in your core business and ultimately improve your bottom line.
We have an accredited ESOS Lead Assessor in our team and so can take your organisation through ESOS from beginning to end.

The ESOS rules state that an ISO 50001 energy management system which is certified by an accredited certification body, covers the ESOS requirements. There are four years until your organisation will need to report for ESOS again, this is ample time to get an ISO 50001 energy management system in place.
At Swan Energy, we are encouraging our clients to take this route through phase 2 of ESOS.
