Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme

Compliance with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme – Beyondly can help your business be a responsible force for good

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) affects large UK organisations, requiring them to undertake energy audits and report back to the Environment Agency.

The scheme runs in phases of 4 years, and we are now in phase 3. Each phase has a qualification date (on which a company must assess whether they are obligated) and a compliance deadline (by which date an organisation must be compliant).

For phase 3, organisations who meet the thresholds as of 31 December 2022 will be obligated to comply by 5 December 2023.

Who is obligated?

A UK organisation is obligated to comply with ESOS phase 3 if on the qualification date it either:

  • Employs 250 or more people, or
  • Has an annual turnover in excess of £44m and an annual balance sheet total in excess of £38m, or
  • Is an overseas company with a UK registered establishment which has 250 or more UK employees (paying income tax in the UK)

Increasingly, businesses who don’t meet the above thresholds are conducting ESOS assessments voluntarily to support their carbon reduction commitments, going above and beyond to mitigate climate change. Following the ESOS scheme presents a real opportunity for businesses to improve energy and fuel efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and subsequently, reap financial benefits.
