Every four years, large companies must prove their compliance with the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS). This provides an excellent opportunity for energy assessors working in the commercial/non-domestic sector to train as ESOS Lead Assessors.
An ESOS Lead Assessor can sign off a company's Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) report, to prove compliance with the scheme. In order to carry out assessments, you must attend and pass an ESOS training course before applying to join an approved ESOS register.
The ESOS Lead Assessor course costs £1995.00+VAT and includes registration to the Elmhurst ESOS register. The course includes:
UK Government established the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) to implement Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU). ESOS is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for large organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. The Environment Agency is the UK scheme administrator. 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. Organisations must then notify the Environment Agency by a set deadline that they have complied with their ESOS obligations. An ESOS Lead Assessor is required to carry out, oversee or review energy audits and overall ESOS assessment.
To become a lead assessor you have to be (or become) a member of an approved professional body register. Individuals can’t apply directly to the Environment Agency to be approved.
