Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme Audits: Enhancing Compliance and Energy Efficiency

Whilst the UK has now left the EU, the EU Energy Efficiency Directive currently still applies, the relevant legislation being the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014.

The legislation requires all non SMEs to have an energy audit every four years. ESOS audits are managed by the Environmental Agency. A requirement is that the auditor must be a Certified Energy Manager (CEM). Bob Sutcliffe, a director of Environmental Efficiency, is a CEM and is on the Environmental Agency list of approved auditors.

Environmental Efficiency has over 25 years of experience in reducing energy use and decarbonisation. This has included work for large companies such as Meta, KPMG, General Electric, Energia, BOC Gases, One 51 Group, Aquilant Ltd, Ricardo AES Corp and Compass Ireland.

The energy audit will first review historic patterns of energy use to determine causes of variations in energy use. For example fuel use for space heating will be reviewed against outdoor temperature data. This review will help determine whether the control systems are optimised and inform the auditor of areas to examine in detail during the site visit.

The site visit will review all significant energy users, how energy use is controlled, whether they are inefficiencies and departures from best practice. Recommendations are then made in the report together with implementation costs and financial benefit.
