Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) qualification

Use your ESOS compliance as a strategy game changer.

Eligible organisations need to review their total energy consumption, including buildings, industrial processes and transport – undertaking surveys to identify energy saving opportunities.

Non-compliances, such as failure to submit on time, can incur penalties from the Environment Agency (EA). Penalties range from publication of non-compliance on the EA’s webinar, to a £50,000 fixed penalty. Fines will increase for each day of non-compliance.

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is underway, with the ESOS Phase 3 deadline of 5th June 2024.
