Environment Agency investigates companies for ESOS compliancy

25 August 2016

An investigation has been initiated by the Environment Agency relating to the Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS).

Announced in 2014, it had a compliancy deadline for the end of last year.

The scheme applies to large companies and includes a mandatory audit of their energy usage.

Run by the Environment Agency, it extended the deadline to comply to the end of January this year, following concerns that many companies would fail to meet the initial date at the end of 2015.

According to Energy Live News, around 1,200 business are being investigated by the agency to confirm their ESOS status.

The Environment Agency has said it will deal with each company on an individual basis.

ESOS is mandatory for all businesses with more than 250 employees and also applies to those with an annual turnover of more than €50m and a balance sheet exceeding €43m, or are members of a corporate group which includes a large enterprise.

Those companies that fall within the ESOS remit must measure their total energy consumption, including buildings, transport and industrial activities or processes.
