Energy audits help businesses to identify exactly where their energy is being used and where improvements can be made to reduce the overall consumption and consequently, the spent.
Start Energy can arrange for energy audits to be carried out on your business. This can often be at very little or even no cost to the business.
ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. The scheme is being overseen by the environment agency.
Organisations that qualify for ESOS must carry out ESOS assessments every 4 years. These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify cost-effective energy saving measures.
Do I Qualify?
ESOS applies to large UK undertakings and their corporate groups. It can also apply to not-for-profit bodies that are large enough to meet the qualification criteria.
Your organisation qualifies for the first compliance period if, on 31 December 2014, it met the ESOS definition of a large undertaking.
A large undertaking:
* Employs 250 or more people
* Has an annual turnover in excess of 50 million euro (£38,937,777), and an annual balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euro (£33,486,489)
Corporate groups qualify if at least one UK group member meets the ESOS definition of a large undertaking.
Public sector organisations do not usually need to comply with ESOS.
Start Energy are able to facilitate fully ESOS compliant audits and assessments. We will ensure that all of our customers are kept up to date with changing legislation and advise on how to remain fully compliant.
