Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out mandatory assessments every four years.
These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes, and transport to identify cost-effective energy-saving measures.
Who needs to comply?
Large companies as defined by the Companies Act 2006 are legally obligated to report on at least 90% of their energy usage if they meet one or both of the following criteria for two consecutive years on or before 31st December 2022.
More than 250 employees in the UK
A turnover exceeding £44.1m and a balance sheet exceeding £37.9m on 31st December 2022
When is the next ESOS submission date?
If your organisation qualifies, you will need to survey your sites and analyse 12 months data to find energy saving recommendations. You then have to report your compliance to the Environment Agency by the 5 December 2023.
31 December 2022
From 6 December 2019 to
5 December 2023
5 December 2023
Many of the organisations in scope of ESOS will also have SECR obligations and with some smart planning can transition easily from ESOS data reporting to SECR reporting.
If you have a certified ISO 50001 energy management system that covers all your energy use you don’t need to carry out an ESOS assessment - just submit a notification to the regulator.
What do the energy assessments involve?
The assessments are the energy audits of a company’s buildings, industrial processes and transport which identify cost-effective energy-saving plans.
To comply you must:
Measure 12-month energy consumption for buildings, industrial processes and transport
Identify the significant areas of energy consumption which account for >95% of your total energy consumption
Conduct energy audits to find energy efficiency solutions for any high-consumption areas
Appoint a ‘Lead Energy Assessor’ to review your ESOS Assessment
Report your compliance to the Environment Agency portal by the 5th December 2023
