Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) PHASE 3

ESOS Phase 3 Has Started

The Energy Savings and Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is entering its third phase.

Get the maximum value from the ESOS compliance process with SMARTech energy

UK businesses have until December 2023 to comply, but the key date for assessing whether or not you qualify is 31st December 2022.

ESOS is a mandatory assessment and energy savings identification scheme and if your company meets one or more of the following criteria, then this government legislation will apply to you:

  • it employs 250 or more people
  • it has an annual turnover in excess of 50 million euro (£44,845,000), and an annual balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euro (£38,566,700)

As an approved ESOS Lead Assessor, SMARTech energy can help guide your company through to ESOS compliance.  The process can take up-to 12 months to achieve certification, so the sooner energy saving opportunities are identified, the sooner projects can be implemented.

What is ESOS?

High energy costs and tighter regulations governing energy use are just a couple of the challenges facing the UK’s business sector.

The aim of ESOS, is to help UK companies become more transparent about their energy consumption, which in turn will reduce their energy costs and improve their commitment to the environment.

Utilising data analytics will identify the adjustments needed to optimise cost and energy efficiency within your business and could save your business upto a 50% reduction in your energy consumption.

The regulations require organisations to take important steps before the compliance date of December 2023.

ESOS Case Study

SMARTech energy’s ESOS compliance work within the charity sector identified more than 26% energy savings for Dorothy House Hospice Care.  Read the case study here.

ESOS contract with Airsprung Group

ESOS contract with Airsprung Group

SMARTech energy secures new ESOS contract with UK’s largest bedroom furniture manufacturer, Airsprung Group

The Wiltshire based bed and mattress manufacturer has contracted Corsham-based energy management and reduction specialist, SMARTech energy, to implement the government backed Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

Launched in 2014, ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme and is the UK Government’s response to the implementation of Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive – which is designed to support energy efficiency measures in the UK’s commercial and industrial sectors.

Approved ESOS Lead Assessor

As an approved ESOS Lead Assessor, SMARTech energy are only one of approximately 1,000 firms in the UK who are qualified to help businesses and organisations to achieve ESOS compliance; offering site surveys, energy analysis and monitoring to identify energy consumption and cost saving opportunities.

The scheme which affects organisations that employ at least 250 people and those that employ less than 250 people – but who achieve an annual turnover in excess of €50m and an annual balance sheet in excess of €43m – is now in its second phase and companies are being urged to adhere to the compliance deadline of 5th December 2019.

Reduce energy costs by 20%

Implementing effective cost energy saving projects can reduce an organisation’s annual energy costs by 20% or more and with the need to protect the environment, together with rising energy costs – the offer of a financial return further contributes to an organisation’s sustainability objective.

MD of SMARTech energy said “Our experience has shown that significant energy savings can be identified through the ESOS process and that going beyond the mandatory environmental compliance makes for a compelling business case.  We look forward to helping the Airsprung Group to achieve ESOS compliance and to supporting their commitment in sustainable energy management”.

As leaders in the provision of specialist commercial services, SMARTech energy can deliver recommended measures through the design, installation and servicing of major building systems – such as heating and cooling, ventilation and lighting projects.
