Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme
Tuesday 26th of July 2022 | Posted In: Compliance, Comply, Energy saving

SECR and ESOS… the same but different!

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) focuses on a company's consumption and emissions, whereas the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) also examines energy use showing ways to make energy savings. There is value in both, which is why we roll them into one.  

At NFU Energy, we perform both ESOS and SECR, and provide a Lead Assessor for your ESOS audits.

ESOS Qualification criteria:

  • 250+ employees OR turnover £44m+ and balance sheet £38m+ on 31 December 2022 (previously €50m and €43m)

SECR Qualification criteria:

  • Annual turnover in excess of £36 million
  • Annual balance sheet total in excess of £18 million
  • Number of employees 250 or more

Phase 3 of ESOS

The ESOS Phase 2 deadline has passed. Phase 3 of ESOS has begun and with that we can arrange your energy audit and find out how much your organisation can save now. We must now measure and report all energy use for a period of one year to include the qualifying date of 31 December 2022 by the deadline of the 05 of December 2023. Give us a call so we can help you avoid any fines by starting the compliance process now.

We will

  • Appoint a lead assessor
  • Calculate your total energy consumption
  • Identify and audit your areas of significant energy consumption
  • Submit reports and debrief your director
  • Notify the Environment Agency
  • Keep records

How you benefit

  • You have complete assurance that all angles are covered to ensure compliance – our ESOS Lead Assessors have engineering experience, knowledge of other compliance systems such as CCL, and working experience with energy procurement and measurement systems.
  • We will help you define, implement, measure and refine your Energy Management Strategy ensuring you meet your ESOS or SECR compliance.
  • No delays or long lead times - we have a full range of specialist equipment so you don’t have to wait for work such as thermal imaging, electrical consumption profiling and environmental temperature, pressure, flow and humidity monitoring.
  • Expert, dedicated attention – we keep all audit work in-house with no sub-contracting so that we can work directly with you to fully understand your energy use and specific audit requirements.

Let us help you to keep tabs on your year-on-year targets and sustainability reporting on the road to net zero.
