DECS, CRC, EU ETS,
CCAs, TM44s, Energy Act 2018 and now ESOS – that’s a lot of
Legislation to get your head round!
Each of these
schemes calls for an understanding of energy consumption in
some form or other. But with ISO 50001 being recognised
internationally as the best practice method for managing
energy, having a certified EnMS will put you in a great
position to comply with these and any other future schemes.
Its expensive though, and on-going. ACI Reports cuts through
all that complex stuff to make things simple, reports Jack
The latest of these schemes, launched in June
this year, is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme or ESOS
– and the first compliance date is 5th December 2015. The
Environment Agency has just launched its September 2014
guidance notes, and the fines are tough!
What does it
Every big enterprise in Britain (with 250+
employees or an annual turnover in excess of €50 million and
a balance sheet in excess of €43 million) has to get an
energy audit of their buildings, industrial processes and
transport once every four years by law. ISO 50001 is a
recognised compliance route for the newly launched Energy
Savings Opportunity Scheme, say some people, ACI Reports say
that unless you are already on this route, forget it and go
down the DEC ESOS and Lead Assessor route.
there is no requirement to actually act on any of the
recommendations in the energy audits. One of the benefits of
using ISO 50001 to comply with ESOS is that it helps
Organisations to develop a framework to implement the most
appropriate energy savings measures identified in the energy
audits, and start to make real energy and cost savings, but
it’s a long term and expensive commitment.

another piece of Legislation, that’s actually quite simple
to deal with.
