Businesses urged to check ESOS compliance before deadline
Businesses across the UK are being urged to asses their energy efficiency and hit the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) deadline, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
The Environment Agency – the scheme administrator – he said only just over 100 businesses have complied so far out of 14,000 organisations. ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK. If they don’t assess their energy use, they may have to pay a penalty of up to £90,000.
According to the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC), implementing some of the efficiencies highlighted by ESOS assessments could save businesses more than £250m a year by reducing consumption by just 0.7%. And where businesses are prepared to invest in measures with a payback period of two years or less, this figure increases to £1.6bn a year.
