Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) PHASE 3

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 is celebrating its eighth anniversary with new staff and strong growth

Energy Management and Reduction specialist SMARTech energy is celebrating its eighth anniversary in style with a new office and three new staff members.

Founding Director of SMARTech energy Stuart Pearce, formed the company in 2014 with the objective to build a business that would offer comprehensive energy management and reduction for commercial businesses – by substantially cutting carbon emissions and reducing energy consumption costs by as much as 20%-50% year on year.

Over the past eight years, SMARTech energy has partnered with organisations across the UK to create bespoke energy reduction strategies; which is led by the company’s investment into the research and development of low-carbon technologies, sustainability solutions and best practice towards environmental policies.

In contrast to its humble beginnings as a “one-man-start-up”, the company now employs 11 staff members at its new office on the Sheldon Business Park in Chippenham.

Employing experts in energy consultancy, digital support, marketing and accountancy, MD Stuart Pearce states “It’s this talented team, together with loyal clients and a commitment to make a difference to the environment that has built a strong foundation for the future of the company”.

Evolving with the times

The current energy crisis, its impact on UK industry and the demand for energy efficient technologies means SMARTech energy are more connected than ever before; with many clients having to reduce their energy costs and consumption in order to survive.

The launch of Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) in 2020 has been pivotal in helping organisations to tackle high energy consumption and costs.  Requiring zero CapEx, the ‘as a service’ model removes any financial, risk or lease barriers and has enabled organisations such as University Technical College Swindon to roll out an energy management programme without financial burden and save more than 43% on energy consumption and 237 tonnes of carbon over a 10-year plan.

Managing Director Stuart Pearce beams “Its these type of savings which reaffirms the company’s vision and mission statement; To take great care and pride in solving our clients’ problems.  Partnering with them to achieve their cost efficiency, energy security and environmental goals”.

Stuart ends “So happy 8th anniversary to SMARTech energy.  Well done to all our team and thank you to all of our clients for being a part of our business journey.  We appreciate your commitments and support over the years and we’re excited for the opportunities which lay ahead”.
