ESOS 

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme

Green Euro IslandA new mandatory energy efficiency scheme has recently been launched for medium sized organisations in the UK.  Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, or ‘ESOS‘  aims to drive down emissions from our business sector helping with the European 2020 carbon reduction target.   It will also help considerably with organisations keeping a lid on costs. It comes to us from article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive.

It affects organisations (all except public sector organisations) with:

More than 250 employees

and/or

An annual turnover at least €50m

or

Annual profits of at least €43m

These organisations must have an energy audit completed and recommendations to reduce their consumption down by 5th December 2015. The penalties for non-compliance range from £5,000 to £50,000.

More information is available on the UK Govt website.

If you have any questions including how to comply with ESOS please contact us on spi@carboncentre.org or 01387 702 347.
