Is your company ESOS compliant? The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is EU legislation which requires that large companies carry out energy audits.

All large UK businesses are potentially affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations, as they are required to carry out regular energy auditing.

Large companies are those considered to have 250 members of staff, or a turnover of €50 million. The energy audit should include reviews of overall operations, use of transport and the amount of energy used per employee – all with a view to identify energy saving opportunities.

Opportunities to save energy alongside ESOS guidance

The ESOS guidance can be an opportunity to focus on your company’s energy management, so that you can ultimately save money, as well as having a positive impact on the environment. This legislation is an ideal opportunity to drastically improve company policies and invest in energy efficient directives, so that you maximise resources and minimise cost.
