ACI can report that on 27th June, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced the results of its consultation for the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), which includes using registered lead energy assessors, which ACI Reports can provide. ESOS is the UKs way to implement Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, and introduces mandatory energy audits for non-SMEs. ESOS is expected to result in cost benefits of 1.6bn to the 9,400 participating businesses.

The ESOS Regulations, which were laid in parliament on 26th June 2014 require that the lead ESOS energy assessors be sourced from existing schemes with set qualifications. This applies to all non-SMEs that are not public bodies, and covers energy used in buildings, transport and industrial processes.

All participants must produce results for an ESOS-compliant assessment by December 5th 2015 and will continue the scheme in four year phases. Existing energy management assessments such as ISO50001, Display Energy Certificates (DECs) with Advisory Reports and Green Deal Assessments can provide compliance or part compliance. Unless you have a certified ISO50001 energy management system that covers your whole organisation, or the group of organisations with whom you are participating, you will also need a lead auditor to review your overall compliance with ESOS. ACI Reports can provide the services and Consultancy to cover off the requirement.

ACI Reports Assessors are independent and include mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements to ensure that their competence, skills and knowledge are current, as required for ESOS.

The timetable, regulations and associated guidance is now available via The Environment Agency will administer ESOS alongside their role managing the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).
