The Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), is a new UK regulation under which large businesses must carry out energy efficiency audits and is likely to affect more than 10,000 organisations.
Businesses meeting the directive criteria have until December 5th, 2015 to ensure compliance and failure to do so could see them met with hefty fines of £50,000+.
The benefits of ESOS are expected to be triple-fold – increasing energy efficiency, improving business profitability/competitiveness, while at the same time mitigating climate change.
But, in order to identify such opportunities, the companies are obliged to carry out/or have carried out on their behalf, mandatory assessments of their current energy usage.
And the ESOS regulations require the audit to be repeated every four years there on.
Businesswise is well placed to support clients throughout the various ESOS assessment stages in the coming year and thereafter.
