What’s the difference?

Simply the difference between ESOS and SECR is what they measure; ESOS examines energy use, while SECR focuses on a company’s emissions.

ESOS identifies opportunities to improve energy efficiency, and these will be listed in a report. However, SECR reports on what actions need to be taken during the reporting year to cut energy use and emissions.

Our compliance experts will:

  • Advise you whether you need to comply with either scheme.
  • If you do, explain how to register and what audits you require.
  • Carry out the relevant on-site audits if needed
  • Help you define, implement, measure and refine your energy management strategy.
  • Register your ESOS compliance on the Environment Agency website.
  • Provide you with an evidence pack including all the necessary data and reports.

In short, we take care of everything for you.

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 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.
