Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
The EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) (2012/27/EU) which was adopted on 25 October 2012 consists of a series of measures which intend to put the EU back on track to meet its target to reduce primary energy consumption by 20% by 2020 (compared to business as usual). The EU directive is mandatory for all member states. One key deliverable (Article 8) of EED is for all non-SMEs to have undertaken a mandatory energy audit. In the UK, Article 8 will be satisfied by our Government's ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme). This white paper discusses what the scheme is, who’s captured and the routes to compliance.
