With just over six months left until the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) compliance deadline of 5 December, the Energy Institute has launched an ESOS toolkit and set up a free energy saving advice service.
All large organisations in the UK with 250 or more employees, or have an annual turnover of more than £38,973,777 and a balance sheet of £33,486,489 qualify under ESOS.
Louise Kingham OBE FEI, Chief Executive, Energy Institute, said: “An estimated 14,000 businesses in the UK fall within the scope of ESOS and are legally obliged to comply with the requirements by December.
“The options of non-compliance and a potential fine of £50,000 or buying an energy audit and doing nothing with the results are bad choices and our concern is they will be made without the knowledge of company boards and executives.
“The EI has put the toolkit together and is making advice freely available from experience and highly skilled Lead Assessors who are recognised by the EI for their professionalism, so that company directors don’t sleepwalk into difficulty. There is still time to comply with these new regulations if you seek help now.’
