Energy Savings

What is ESOS?

ESOS is an energy auditing and assessment scheme introduced by the UK government, intended to encourage large undertakings in the UK to focus on being more energy efficient. We are now in Phase 3 of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, and if your company qualifies, it must undertake an energy assessment and audit every four years and identify ways to save energy.

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is mandatory for any UK company that either employs 250 or more employees; or has an annual turnover of £44 million or more and an annual balance sheet total in excess of £38 million.

What happens if we
don't comply?

The qualification date for compliance with ESOS Phase 3 is 31 December 2022, and the deadline for compliance has now been postponed until 5 June 2024. This extension has been granted to allow time for participants to meet the new ESOS Phase 3 requirements.

Failing to comply, maintain records, or notify of ESOS compliance by the deadline can result in civil sanctions and hefty fixed penalty fines of up to £50,000 being issued by the Environment Agency. You company’s details are also published online which does not promote your business in a positive light.
