Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is a mandatory assessment scheme administered by the Environment Agency for all eligible UK Organisations.
It is effectively an audit of an organisation's energy usage across its buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify any possible cost effective energy saving strategies.
Organisations are required to carry out these assessments every 4 years and if these obligations are not met, the regulator (Environment Agency) can issue civil sanctions including financial penalties to the offending organisation.
If your company currently employs more than 250 people or has an annual turnover in excess of 50 million euros along with a balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euros, then it's likely that you will have to comply with the regulations.
Your organisation qualifies if on 31 December 2018 it meets the above ESOS definition of a large undertaking and the deadline for compliance for ESOS phase 2 is 5th December 2019
If your business meets the criteria outlined then you will require an ESOS Lead Assessor to conduct an energy audit.
The only exception to this is if your business has ISO50001 Accredited Energy Management System and meets the required compliance date. Failure to comply with ESOS will result in fines of up to £50,000 and possible charges of an additional £500 per day for up to 80 days. Non-complying companies will also be named and shamed.
Although the audit's recommendations are not mandatory they typically take advantage of the immediate savings such as LED Lighting etc.
Supply chain and customer expectations for CO2 emissions and Social Corporate Responsibility are driving corporations to invest in green technology, the savings to be achieved often make the investment a 'no brainer'.
We can offer ESOS Lead assessments through one of our many partners.
These expert individuals are approved by one of a number of certified organisations to carry out and oversee the energy audits and overall energy assessments. The Lead Assessor is also required to sign off any ESOS assessments.

Lawley Primary School used Optimise Energy as their main supplier of LED lighting when they recently changed all of their lighting over to the money saving bulbs. Nathan came to the school to do a full audit of the lighting and produced an easy to understand document for the school and its Governors which outlined potential savings.
The school recently completed its installations and is very happy with the look and the feel the lighting has produced and is looking forward to seeing the future savings. Lawley Primary School would recommend Optimise Energy for your LED needs.

The new LED lighting has made our facility so much brighter. Long term customers noticed the difference instantly, commenting on the livelier look. It is good to know that a saving in energy bills accompanies the improved brightness.
