Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

Organisations that qualify for the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) will need to carry out their first ESOS assessment and notify the Environment Agency by the 5th December 2015 in order to be compliant with the policy.


It is estimated that the ESOS Regulations will effect approximately 10,000 organisations across the UK.

The ESOS Regulations enact Article 8 of Directive 2012/ 27 EU on Energy Efficiency. The Regulation requires large undertakings and their corporate groups to;

  • Measure their total energy consumption for industrial processes, transport and use within buildings
  • Conduct energy audits to identify cost- effective energy efficiency recommendations
  • Report compliance to the Environment Agency.
