The Energy Efficiency Directive (27/EU/2012) ‘ESOS’

The Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) applies to all large organisations across the 28 European (EU) members states (and will continue to include the UK beyond Brexit).

CLS Energy can now provide fully compliant assessments across all 28 member states.

A large company in the UK is defined as having 250 or more employees or has an annual turnover of €50m (£44,845,000) and a balance sheet of €43m (£38,566,700) as at 31st December 2018 using Bank of England exchange rates.

CLS Energy conducted more than 20 compliant ESOS Audits for Phase 1 across four-member states with twelve of these Phase 1 customers already contracting with us to conduct their ESOS Phase 2. Environment Agency randomised checks demonstrated all of our assessments as compliant.

The deadline for compliance and notification of Phase 2 completion is 5th December 2019.

There are companies that may have recently achieved these threshold employee numbers or financial targets. As new entrants, it may be that they are not be required to conduct ESOS for Phase 2.

If you have more questions visit our FAQ section on ESOS and SECR.
