What is ESOS Phase 3?

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a scheme brought forward by the UK government to help organisations identify cost-effective energy efficiency measures that can be implemented across the business.

Run by the Environment Agency (EA), ESOS requires large organisations in the UK to undertake mandatory energy audits every four years to identify potential energy efficiency measures.

Energy audits must cover energy across the entire organisation, from buildings, industrial processes and transport and process energy usage. 

ESOS is now in Phase 3 (previous phases were phase 1 and 2), with UK organisations who meet the criteria required to have completed and reported to the Environment Agency by 5 December 2023. 

Does my organisation fit the ESOS Criteria?

Organisations that meet either one or both the conditions below must comply with ESOS:

  • Employs 250 or more people.
  • Has an annual turnover in excess of £44 million and an annual balance sheet total in excess of £38 million.

Why is complying with ESOS important?

Failure to comply with ESOS can put your organisation at risk of fines of up to £50,000 by the Environmental Agency (EA). 

Complying with ESOS will put your organisation in the best position to start understanding your energy consumption and implementing energy efficiency practices that will help reduce your energy bills and carbon emissions.
