ESOS Phase 2 - the compliance deadline is nearing...

21st March 2019

Melanie Harper

The qualification deadline date for Phase 2 of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme has now passed (31 December 2018) so it is key that obligated companies make a start on the pathway to compliance for Phase 2 in order to meet the compliance deadline of 5 December 2019

If your organisation qualifies for ESOS Phase 2 compliance you are now able to begin the compliance process. 

Discover more about ESOS and how you can turn mandatory compliance into a real cost saving opportunity for your organisation.

Who is obligated?

A UK organisation is obligated to comply with ESOS if on the qualification date for a given ESOS Phase* it either:

  • employs 250 or more people, or
  • has an annual turnover in excess of €50 million (£44,845,000 Phase 2*), and an annual balance sheet total in excess of €43 million (£38,566,700 Phase 2*), or
  • an overseas company with a UK registered establishment which has 250 or more UK employees (paying income tax in the UK)

*The confirmed exchange rate from Euros to Sterling for ESOS Phase 2 

NB: “balance sheet total” means the aggregate of the amounts shown as assets in the company’s balance sheet (that is before deducting both current and long-term liabilities). Therefore it is the gross figure, not the net figure.

Benefits of being compliant

Apart from the obvious, implementation of any energy saving opportunities identified in the audit could lead to significant energy efficiency savings and therefore, financial benefits.
