  • Submit and total estimate of the organisations total energy consumption (including- energy used in buildings – transport – industrial process)
  • Identify the major sources of energy consumption within the organisation equating to 90% of the total. A further detailed audit is required for the areas identified to look for potential efficiencies.
  • Submit an official declaration to the scheme administrator; Environment Agency / SEPA / NIEA.
  • Although not part of the scheme it is assumed that the efficiency recommendations from the Energy Assessors report will be implemented by the board resulting in cost savings.

Compliance Reporting

Organisations will be required to undertake an energy audit / assessment by a Qualified and Registered Lead ESOS Auditor. A declaration, signed by a Company Director, confirming the details of the assessments are as accurate as reasonably possible.

As an alternative route to undertaking ESOS audit, obligated companies may comply with the UK Government Scheme through a number of other routes:

  • Implementing and operating a certified ISO 50001 energy management system
  • Obtaining Display Energy Certificates (DEC) or
  • Carry out Green Deal Assessments
