Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

ESOS is a new mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria of:

  • 250 employees or
  • Fewer than 250 employees but has:
    • An annual turnover exceeding 50 million euro (£39m approx) and
    • A balance sheet exceeding 43 million Euro (£33approx)


Is part of a group which includes an organisation that meets either set of criteria outlined above.

ESOS covers energy used for buildings, transport and processes - there are a range of options available to achieve ESOS compliance from Display Energy Certificates to ISO 500001.
Qualifying businesses need to report by Dec 5th 2015 but as annual energy figures are required the sooner you can get started the better.
Please see detailed guidance from the government to find out if you qualify for ESOS and how to comply.
