At npower Business Solutions we can support you on your journey to ESOS compliance and help you make the most of the opportunities it presents.

What is ESOS?

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is an EU directive (adopted into UK Law) that mandates large businesses or enterprises to conduct regular energy audits. The audits are required to identify energy and carbon saving opportunities specific to each business participating.

Phase II for ESOS is now underway with organisations required to notify the Environment Agency of their compliance by 5 December 2019.

Large UK enterprises meeting either of the following criteria must comply:

  • Employs 250 or more people, or,
  • Has an annual turnover in excess of 50 million euro (£38,937,777*), and an annual balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euro (£33,486,489*)

*These figures are estimates only and are subject to currency fluctuations.

Alternative routes to ESOS Compliance

There are alternative ways to comply with ESOS. If the energy you use is covered by ISO 50001, Display Energy Certificates (DECs) or Green Deal Assessments, there is no need to complete an ESOS audit. You may however still need approval from an ESOS Lead Assessor and will need to notify the Environment Agency by 5th December 2019.
