Strengthening the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

Consultations/Regulation Review

On 6th July 2021, the UK government published a consultation on proposed changes to strengthen the current ESOS scheme as we move into phase 3

You can view the full consultation details on the government website HERE. The consultation closes on 28th September 2021.

The aims of the changes and improvements are:

  • To increase the number of ESOS participants taking action by improving audit quality
  • To increase carbon and cost savings by increasing the scope and number of recommendations taken up
  • To ensure recommendations are consistent with UK’s net zero commitments

The changes within the consultation are being considered for implementation for ESOS phase 3 (compliance deadline of December 2023). However, some of the proposed changes may take longer to implement, therefore are considered for a later implementation in phase 4 of the scheme (compliance deadline of December 2027). 

The consultation is set out into four chapters which form the central consultation proposal for introduction in phase 3, with two additional chapters which suggest options for changes in a later phase of the scheme. You can view the chapter names and a summary of the proposals HERE
