The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) phase 2 has arrived and must be completed by 5 December 2019.
What is ESOS?
ESOS requires large organisations in the UK to produce mandatory reports on their energy use and energy efficiency opportunities. These must be carried out every four years and cover transport, buildings and process energy usage.
As ESOS is a mandatory government scheme, by failing to comply you could receive a large fine in excess of £50,000.
You qualify for ESOS if your business:
Employs 250 people or more
Has an annual turnover of over £39 million
Has an annual balance sheet of over £33.5 million
Is part of a group where one or more organisation is eligible
