Find your ESOS route to compliance

New legislation comes into force this year introducing mandatory energy audits for 'Large Enterprises' in the UK. See how your business is affected.

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is being developed as part of the UK’s implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive. Large enterprises will be required to undertake ESOS assessments to identify cost-effective ways to invest in energy efficiency, helping reduce energy bills and increase competitiveness.

As with a lot of energy legislation, the criteria for being ‘in or out’ is complex and can depend on employee numbers, turnover or your balance sheet. It is possible that although your site may not be directly eligible, the rules mean that you are brought into the scope of the scheme by another site in your group.

This event is designed to help you understand the new legislation and your requirements under the scheme. It will take you through the newly released guidance document and qualification criteria so you can determine if you are in or out and plan your route to compliance in order to meet the compliance deadline for phase 1 in 2015.
