29 January is the final crucial date for the first phase of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
Businesses that failed to comply by 5 December 2015 were shown some leniency and given until 29 January 2016 to either complete compliance, or notify their scheme regulator of a future date by which they expect to be compliant.

This flexibility, announced ahead of last year’s official deadline, highlights the desire for companies to show their intention to abide by ESOS and improve their energy efficiency. The aim is that ESOS compliance will help spur reductions in energy that will help towards lowering EU consumption by 20% by 2020.
Earlier this month the Environment Agency announced that 3,000 businesses are still yet to comply with ESOS. If you haven’t started the process or still aren’t sure if your business is affected we can help – click here to contact our team today.
