What is ESOS?

The Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme is a mandatory piece of EU legislation requiring large companies to submit an energy report to the Environment Agency every four years. ESOS Phase 2 is the follow on from ESOS Phase 1, which occurred in 2015.  

Who does it affect? 

All large companies with either over 250 employees or an annual turnover in excess of €50 million and an annual balance sheet total in excess of €43 million.

It is important to look ahead and make an early start with ESOS phase 2 compliance. There are around 10,000 businesses that will be impacted by ESOS and each one requires some form of energy audit to ensure compliance.

Key dates

  • The qualification deadline is 31st December 2018. 
  • The reporting deadline is 5th December 2019. 

Fines for missing the deadline

Failure to submit and energy audit or submitting a false or misleading report could result in penalty of up to £135,000.

ISO 50001 and ESOS Compliance

Information from the ESOS audit which took place in phase 1 can be used as a basis for implementing an energy management system certified to ISO 50001. This will automatically demonstrate compliance for ESOS phase 2 of and will make it easier to demonstrate compliance with other phases of the scheme going forward.
