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

CLS Energy has taken all of its ESOS Phase 1 and Phase 2 customers to notification and full compliance. For our first 63# Phase 2 companies, we have saved a total of £34,930,269. That amounts to an average cost saving of £554,449 per company and 26,933 tonnes of overall greenhouse gas (carbon) reductions.

That’s the equivalent of turning off the electricity for the year to 76,449 average UK houses (more than all of the domestic properties in Oxford).

The third phase of ESOS (Phase 3) can commence from 1st January 2022 to the qualification date of 31st December 2022. CLS Energy have already signed contracts with some forty three (43) of our previous and some new customers to begin work on this now and get them to compliance by early 2023, ahead of their competitors. These include Agilent, Aico, Bottomline, Cooke Aquaculture, Epwin Group, FC Groundworks, Future Industrial Services, Hy-Ten Reinforcements, Inflite Engineeringthe Landmark Trust, Paydens, Photobox, Sysmex, Thomas Armstrong, Uniserve and the University of Buckingham.

With energy and fuel prices at double what they were only 12 months ago, Energy efficiency measures, technologies, controls and behaviours will deliver double digit ROIs. Don’t wait, request a call from an ESOS specialist today – contact us and we will get straight back to you.

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 (c £44m) and a balance sheet of €43m (c £38m) as at 31st December 2022 using Bank of England exchange rates.

CLS Energy auditors conducted well over 175 compliant ESOS Energy, Fleet and Process 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 500 sites and profiled more than 170 large 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 for Phase 3 completion is 5th December 2023. If you believe you may need to comply, please don’t want, get in contact for a no obligation discussion.

Companies that have recently achieved these thresholds, may not be required to conduct ESOS for Phase 3.

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 20%.

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).
