The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and savings identification scheme for large undertakings in the UK.
The scheme comes around every 4 years with Phase 1 in 2015. We are now in Phase 3 ESOS with deadlines as shown below.
ESOS qualification date is the date on which organisations must assess if they qualify for ESOS. The compliance date is the date by which qualifying organisations must fulfil the requirements of ESOS, and submit their notification to the Environment Agency.
Brownlow Utilities engineers were amongst the first wave of accredited ESOS Lead Assessors in the country and involved in the initial 100 compliances in 2015. We have since helped many companies comply with ESOS, identifying energy saving measures and over £3m annual savings.
With a proven, 3 stage process, we help businesses collect their energy and transport data, conduct onsite audits, compile the ESOS energy savings reports ready for submission to the Environment Agency - on time and to specification.
This is backed by our market-leading bespoke energy intelligence portal giving a detailed understanding of your energy use and a team of sustainability experts that can navigate the wider Net Zero obligations you will face in Phase 4.
Businesses complying in Phase 3 of ESOS potentially face some time, financial and compliance challenges.
With the above in mind, NOW is the time to plan out your business’s entire ESOS journey!
We strongly advise you to assess your energy data and arrange your site energy surveys as soon as you can. As proven in Phase 1 and 2, the closer we get to the compliance deadline, the more demand there is for qualified energy engineers and ESOS lead assessors. Many are booked up early and day rates are likely to increase closer to the deadline.
We can help - not just by providing our accredited energy engineers and lead assessors, but through a detailed understanding of your energy data and the wider Net Zero obligations you will face in Phase 4.
