Up to 1700 UK companies - about one in five -
required to register under the Government's Energy
Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) have so far failed
to do so despite three extensions to the deadline
date, according to recent Environment Agency (EA)
data. Now, says consultancy Green Energy Consulting,
an EA enforcement team is to target companies
continuing to disregard the scheme.
So far, Green Energy Consulting says it has
identified almost £9m worth of savings throughout its
entire ESOS project portfolio, covering areas such as
transport fuel use, behavioural training, lighting and
HVAC optimisation. ESOS, it says, is intended not just
for compliance reasons, but to attain tangible,
affordable energy reductions that positively affect
the bottom line.
Companies falling within the ESOS criteria, but still
to register with the scheme, are being advised to get
on the case quickly.
