Friday, 29 January 2016

Tomorrow (Friday 29th January) marks the deadline for qualifying companies to notify the Environment Agency of compliance with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). In November, the original ESOS deadline - set for 5th December - was extended after so few firms had confirmed compliance.

It seems that the reprieve has spurred businesses into action, as H&V News (27th January 2016) reports that the EA has now received 4,000 notifications and expects another 2,500 before the deadline. However, these 6,500 companies represent just half of the total number qualifying under the scheme, with the remaining firms facing a fine of up to £50,000.

The ESOS regulations were introduced to meet the requirements of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive, which demands that its member states implement a programme of routine energy audits for large organisations. ESOS makes it mandatory for UK-based businesses that employ 250 or more staff and/or have an annual turnover above £39 million or a balance sheet in excess of £34 million to be audited for energy efficiency.

If your business isn’t eligible for an ESOS audit, you needn’t worry about the deadline but you may nevertheless want to consider an energy analysis. An assessment of your electric motor-powered equipment such as pumps, conveyors and mixers along with HVAC and humidification systems could make you aware of potential savings within your business that you’d never previously considered.

Here at Gibbons we have considerable experience of products and services that significantly improve energy efficiency within offices, factories, healthcare facilities and data centres to name just a few.

To arrange an energy assessment with Gibbons, call 01621 868138 or email and one of our friendly team will be happy to help.
