The new Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is the UK Government’s response to Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive which requires all Member States to introduce a regime of regular energy audits for ‘large enterprises’ (non-SMEs) to promote the uptake of cost-effective energy efficiency measures.
These mandatory audits must be undertaken by 5 December 2015 and then at least every four years thereafter.
In a way it may target an existing market failing. At the moment energy audit reports are completed but often (apart from the no cost and low cost measures) little is implemented. Perhaps, and as I will explain, ESOS has the opportunity to change this and ensure that more energy saving measures are implemented.
