Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) has been established by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in response to the requirement for all Member States of the European Union to implement Article 8 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (‘the Directive’). In simple terms, an ESOS Assessment requires participants to do three things:

  1. Measure their total energy consumption
  2. Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations
  3. Report compliance to the Environment Agency (who are the scheme administrator)
