Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria.

Introduced in 2014, the Regulations require organisations that qualify for ESOS to carry out energy assessments every 4 years. These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures and which must be carried out and overseen or reviewed by ESOS-qualified assessors.

Organisations must then notify the Environment Agency that they have complied with their ESOS obligations by the required deadline.

The BBPA will again be partnering with Carbon Architecture to offer members an extremely cost-effective and valued-added route to compliance for phase 2 of ESOS, due in 2019. If you require any additional information please contact Paul Oakley at BBPA or Tim Roebuck at Carbon Architecture directly on 07572 699 036 or
