2019 is here, and so is Phase 2 of ESOS compliance

So, it’s that ESOS time again! 2019 brings the second phase of compliance for large businesses and as one of FEC Energy’s lead assessors, I have a growing client list for whom we will enable compliance requirements to be met.

Unsurprisingly given our business sector, I will be working for several large agricultural businesses, however, we also have some non-agricultural clients and with my background in commercial energy efficiency, we may be well placed to service your requirements too.

The key dates for ESOS compliance are:

  • 05 December 2019 – final compliance deadline. This time around there will be no leniency on late submissions, and the financial penalties for non-compliance are best avoided; so the earlier you make a start, the better
  • 31 December 2018 – reported energy consumption for a consecutive 12 month period must include that used on this date

The compliance process requires that audits are carried out on 90% of your organisation’s energy consumption (including transport fuels). This will be a significant time requirement for any large organisation so the sooner the process starts the better. (For more about the requirements please see this blog)

If you want to know more and to find out what we can do for you, give me a call.
