Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) phase 2 compliance has started

Posted on: July 25th, 2018 by cbmEditor

The CBM is here to guide your company through the audit process with our expert knowledge of your sector.

 

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme

The legislation means all qualifying organisations have to prepare mandatory energy audits and if you know you will qualify for Phase 2 there is no reason why you shouldn’t start doing your energy assessments now. The audits identify cost-effective measures to cut energy spending, and phase 2 of the audits must be signed off by a registered assessor and submitted to the Environment Agency by December 5th 2019.

 

All companies with at least one of their UK group members with 250 employees or more, turnover above 50m euros, or a balance sheet value above 43m euros will be affected, which is likely to be more than 9,000 enterprises across the UK, and will affect 40+ CBM members. Please remember this is based on your organisation group structure.

The scheme covers all power and fuel used by a company for industrial processes, building and transport.

 

Phase 1 has taught us that detailing all energy uses throughout a large business, and calculating means of reducing costs can be complex and time consuming, particularly for those already dealing with Climate Change Levy (CCL), the Carbon Reduction Commitment and the Mandatory Carbon Reporting Systems.

CBM members who are not required by the legislation to have a formal ESOS audit can also benefit from voluntarily opting to carry out an audit to identify practical energy saving projects for themselves. The cost of this service is £2,500 plus reasonable travel and overnight accommodation costs if this is required and will include energy measuring and audit work plus a final report prepared by our internal energy consultant.
