Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a a mandatory energy assessment scheme for large organisations in the UK.
ESOS mandates that organisations conduct an in-depth review of their energy use in order to identify ways to improve energy efficiency. Across the scheme (2015 – 2030), the government estimates that after ESOS (Phase 2) the net benefit to the UK will around £1.6 billion.
Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out ESOS assessments every 4 years. These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures.
You need to comply with ESOS if your organisation:
