Mandatory ESOS legislation spells gain - not pain - for 10,000 UK organisations Thursday 5 March 2015 PDF Print it is not too late to begin the mandatory ESOS assessment process and meet the 5th December 2015 deadline Leading energy rating organisation, Elmhurst Energy, believes the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) will provide significant long term energy and costs savings to the estimated 10,000 organisations affected by the mandatory legislation. ESOS applies to companies which have more than 250 employees, or an annual turnover exceeding 50 million Euros, and requires them to have an energy audit completed by 5th December 2015. Participants must then carry out an ESOS assessment in each subsequent four year compliance period, ending on 5th December 2019, 2023 and so on. “The ethos behind ESOS is that reducing your energy consumption goes hand in hand with saving you money, so that the costs of the ESOS audit itself are more than paid back if the identified energy saving measures are implemented,” explains Stephen O’Hara, Managing Director for Elmhurst Energy. “We can help companies achieve this. We are passionate about energy rating and we work from the viewpoint that ESOS should be less about pain and more about the opportunity to save costs.” Elmhurst Energy is already working with companies and their management teams to ensure they understand and meet their specific requirements for ESOS compliance. However, it is not too late to begin the mandatory ESOS assessment process and meet the 5th December 2015 deadline. “The first and most important action is to find out whether your business needs to comply with ESOS. If the answer is yes, then you should contact an ESOS consultant, such as Elmhurst Energy, as soon as possible,” continues Stephen. “We aim to manage the audit process on your behalf, to eliminate risk, minimise your costs and maximise your return on investment.” One of the first organisations to gain approval to hold a government authorised register of ESOS Lead Assessors, Elmhurst Energy also provides a high standard of training for ESOS consultants as a professional body for the scheme. Elmhurst Energy has produced an informative Guide to ESOS, which can be downloaded from www.elmhurstenergy.co.uk. -ends- Media Contact: Richard Pagett, Aria Public Relations, email: Richard@ariapr.co.uk, T: 01727 884874 Picture of Elmhurst Energy MD Stephen O'Hara is available on request.
