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 measures.

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.
