About ESOS

The Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a new mandatory government scheme which affects up to 10,000 UK organisations. The scheme has been designed to increase industry’s awareness of energy consumption to make it easier for businesses to take action, to lower their energy bills and lower the rate of carbon emissions across the UK. The ethos behind the scheme is that reducing your energy consumption goes hand in hand with saving you money, so that the costs of the ESOS audit itself are more than paid back, if the identified energy saving measures are implemented.
