By December 2015, thousands of large organisations in the UK
will have to comply with the Government's new Energy Savings
Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). This mandatory audit requires a full
assessment of energy used by buildings, industrial processes
and transport with the aim of identifying cost-effective energy-saving
However, many organisations now face the decision of whether
to follow the procedure of ESOS compliance, or meet this qualification
standard by achieving ISO 50001 certification instead. There
are benefits and drawbacks with either route, says energy management
specialist Enistic, and businesses that have already started
the ISO 50001 process might well find it best to continue.
Enistic has produced an Easy ESOS package that sets out to answer
most of the questions around ESOS compliance. You'll find
more information here.
