Efficient energy monitoring systems – the only way to dampen the shock of ESOS

Efficient energy monitoring systems are the only solutions capable of dampening the shock set to hit a number of large companies covered by the Government’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

The forthcoming scheme will force large companies to carry out a thorough energy audit or face the prospect of paying up to £90,000 in fines.

While the Department of Energy and Climate Change believes that ESOS could potentially target around 7,400 companies, a recent statement from Lord Rupert Redesdale, the founder and CEO of the recently formed Energy Managers’ Association, paints a significantly different picture.

In fact, Lord Redesdale believes that there may be between 9-14,000 companies targeted by ESOS, many of which are financial businesses headquartered in the City of London.

Under ESOS provisions, companies will have to be fully compliant with the scheme’s requirements by December 2015, by in order to do so, they’d need at least one year’s worth of accurate energy consumption measurements. In other words, the latest date to start measuring energy consumption is the 5th of December 2014.

The ESOS scheme is providing a significant opportunity for UK businesses to employ best practice techniques in their energy monitoring and consumption.

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
