The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) helps businesses minimise the cost of meeting energy efficiency measures.
It was set up in response to the 2012 EU Energy Efficiency Directive which stated that 'large enterprises' need to complete mandatory energy audits once every four years.
Potential Benefits of ESOS
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) has targeted nearly one third of the British energy demand and the Department of Energy & Climate Change has estimated that the scheme will produce a £1.6bn net benefit.
Enterprises involved will be given the opportunity to reduce energy waste and identify savings. A reduction in energy bills translates to financial savings that can be reinvested across different business sectors to increase profitability. These savings will be identified through audits.
Energy audits are a great way to highlight areas to deliver efficiencies and help reduce overheads. They are an extremely useful benchmarking exercise, not only against future performance but also against industry standards and best practice guidelines.
