The next ESOS compliance deadline will be the 5th December 2019 but EA's advice would be to get ahead - implement your energy saving recommendations now.
As the name implies, Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) is more than just another regulatory obligation, it is an opportunity to make real and lasting changes that will support long-term efficiency and environmental best-practice.
In developed and emerging markets, ESOS are commonly used by the corporate for retention of their key employees whose services are critical for business growth.
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme Regulations (ESOS)
Most research on ESOs in organisations has been focused on executive stock options (Certo, Daily, Cannella & Dalton, 2003; McGuire & Matta, 2003; Sanders 2001).
Led by the Environment Agency, ESOS obliges firms to carry out an energy audit of their buildings, industrial processes and transport to identify energy saving measures, which if implemented, could lead to huge cost savings.
