Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS)


Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme


ESOS (The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme that applies to large UK undertakings and their corporate groups that are large enough to meet the qualification criteria set out below.

You will if you have either:

  • An average of more than 250 employees
  • Turnover greater than or equal to €50,000,000 and a balance sheet of €43,000,000.

Failure to comply will result in a range of financial penalties up to £90,000, as well as being publicly named as a non-compliant company.


Phase 2


The ESOS Phase 2 deadline passed on December 5th 2019, but it’s not too late to act. Our experienced team can help you mitigate any fines by starting the compliance process as soon as possible. Penalties are issued on a time scale for non-compliance, so time is of the essence. Failure to comply altogether could result in a fine of up to £90k.
