Eligible organisations need to review their total energy consumption, including buildings, industrial processes and transport and conduct audits to identify energy saving opportunities.

Non-compliances, such as failure to submit on time, can incur penalties from the Environment Agency (EA). Penalties range from publication of non-compliance on the EA’s website, to a £50,000 fixed penalty. Fines will increase for each day of non-compliance.

There are four potential routes to compliance. Our ESOS Lead Assessors will work with you to understand the best option for your business:
