ESOS

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

CLS Energy has taken all of its ESOS Phase 2 customers to notification and compliance and for the first 45# companies, we have saved a total of £31,366,296. That amounts to an average cost saving of £697,029 per company and 20,550 tonnes of overall greenhouse gas (carbon) reductions.

CLS ESOS Lead Assessors are registered and qualified to conduct ESOS to:

Manufacturing, Process and Operations, customers include:

Inflite Engineering, Hy-Ten Reinforcements, Hallmark (UK), Thomas Armstrong, and Nivea in the UK and Nordic nations.

Transport, Logistics and Haulage, customers include:

Gregory Distribution, Freightroute, Future Industrial Services and Headlam Group.

Buildings, customers include:

JMK Group, Bottomline Technologies and Aico.

The Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) applies to all large organisations across the 27 European (EU) members states (and the UK post Brexit).

CLS Energy can now provide fully compliant assessments across 20 EU member states. The 27 EU member states have slightly different criteria, see FAQ section entitled “Do ESOS and SECR apply to the UK only” or contact us to discuss specific requirements.

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 auditors conducted well over 150 compliant ESOS Audits across four-member states with 87% of our Phase 1 customers returning to carry out their ESOS Phase 2 with us. Environment Agency randomised checks demonstrated all of our assessments as compliant. We have assessed well over 350 sites and profiled more than 150 fleets.

It is important to note that fleet qualifications are not demanded of most ESOS registers. Where fleet represents a company’s Significant Energy Consumer (SEC) , it is important to appoint an assessor that specialises in fleet. Otherwise, the assessment may not be compliant and may result in meaningless recommendations.

As well as being a Chartered Fellow of the Energy Institute (FEI) Alan Asbury is one of only six such people registered with the Energy Institute to conduct fleet assessments.

The deadline for compliance and notification of Phase 2 completion was 5th December 2019. If you feel you may need to comply, please get in contact.

Companies that have recently achieved these thresholds, may not be required to conduct ESOS for Phase 2.

If you are yet to comply or feel you may need to, contact us for a confidential and no obligation discussion and advice on how we can assist you to establish, and if mandated, deliver compliance alongside some highly significant efficiency, cost and carbon savings averaging over 18%.

Government research shows that savings available for ESOS Phase 1 companies amounted to over £2.2bn. Government DECC analysis shows savings acted upon are thought to be only £250mn (just 0.25% of the total available).
