ESOS is being strengthened

On 28th July 2022, the UK Government published their response to last year’s consultation, detailing their intentions to strengthening the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). Following the current landscape of ESOS compliance, the consultation explored areas to improve the quality of ESOS audits, mandating ESOS recommendations, whilst ensuring that it aligns with the UK’s Net-Zero commitments. The UK Government provided a summary of optimistic feedback and decisions that indicated potential changes to phase 3 compliance requirements ahead of 5th December 2023 Phase 3 deadline. Other ambitious changes are to be elaborated in later Phases.
The Phase 3 changes relate to:
  • A standardized template for participants to include compliance information in the ESOS report.
  • The de minimis exemption to now 5% (previously 10%).
  • The addition of an overall energy intensity metric in ESOS reports – This also fills the existing requirements for SECR.
  • Requirement to share ESOS reports with subsidiaries.
  • Requirement for ESOS reports to provide more information on next steps for implementing recommendations.
  • Requirement for participants to set a target or action plan following the Phase 3 compliance deadline, on which they will be required to report against for Phase 4.
  • Collection of additional data for compliance monitoring and enforcement.
  • There will be an increased penalty for non-compliance – an initial penalty of up to £50k and an additional £500 per day until the company complies.
These changes will require additional ESOS reporting, and some businesses will have to go the extra mile in matters like auditing additional sites to comply with the reduced de-minimis. Furthermore, businesses can voluntarily integrate Net-Zero elements into audits and fulfil other Phase 4 requirements in pursuit of earlier ESOS compliance. The UK Government and ESOS Professional Bodies will also work together to improve ESOS report quality through active monitoring and assessment of lead ESOS assessors. Whilst these changes are subject to parliamentary scrutiny, it’s in the best interest for businesses to comply ahead of the Phase 3 deadline. Businesses will need considerable amount of time to ensure that they are fully compliant and prepared for any developments to ESOS and regulatory implementation from the UK Government.

ESOS Phase 3 Deadline Extended to 5th June 2024

We would like to inform you that The Department of Energy Security and Net Zero, formerly known as BEIS, will be extending the deadline for ESOS Phase 3. The new deadline for compliance is deferred to June 5, 2024, which replaces the previous deadline of December 5, 2023. This extension is in response to recent changes requiring businesses to provide additional data to ensure compliance with ESOS regulations. We hope that this update is helpful and enables businesses to comply with the regulations effectively. If you would like to read our ESOS Guide, please download here.

What is the potential impact on our business?

Please be advised that the recent extension of the deadline for ESOS Phase 3 does not modify the qualification thresholds or date. As such, corporations and their affiliated groups that were categorized as “large” as of December 31, 2022, are still obligated to comply with the requirements.

The recent extension announced for organizations that meet the eligibility criteria for ESOS is indeed a matter of great significance. The provision of additional time to submit the required data is a welcome respite, particularly in light of recent changes that have increased the urgency to achieve compliance within the next six months. However, it is imperative to note that despite the extended timeframe, to procure the services of an ESOS lead assessor, prompt action remains essential, as the task of fulfilling the data requirements entails a considerable amount of effort. To secure the services of an ESOS specialist, you may schedule a consultation with one of our experts by completing the form provided below.

Our in-house ESOS Lead Assessors, Phil and Adeayo, will work alongside you through the entire process, advising you on the best route to compliance, helping you gather corporate, data and site information, conducting site surveys, identifying your significant energy consumption, compiling evidence and the directors the report required for compliance, and summarising all opportunities with future action suggestions. We are also available to support in monitoring and verifying the savings actualised from these opportunities leading up to the next phase of the scheme. Taking ESOS as an opportunity, ETS supports clients in saving energy costs immediately.

Final thoughts

At ETS, we provide a range of services inherent to reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, using smart solutions. Our experienced team of Energy Managers are well-equipped with legacy systems and smart energy management tools that can continually monitor and respond to real-time granular energy consumption of your assets. We also house a team of ISO50001 lead assessors that can ensure that your business shows a robust commitment to energy and carbon management through a bespoke package that also reflects your business goals.

ESOS UK Summary of Updates

The Environment Agency has published their No.3 ESOS Newsletter. Having continued with their programme, 176 audits have been completed from the date of publication (03/12/2018). Their ESOS UK report included key findings of the audits to date:

  • 21% were compliant
  • 55% were compliant with remedial actions
  • 13% were non-compliant
  • 11% did not qualify under the scheme

Some of the areas where non-compliance were identified:

  • ESOS audits did not meet the minimum criteria stated in the regulations / guidance
  • ESOS Lead Assessor or board sign off missing
  • Sampling approach not representative of significant energy use
  • Moved premises between qualification and completion dates so organisations thought that there was no need for energy audits
  • ‘Process’ energy consumption had been omitted (e.g. manufacturing process / plant and equipment or refrigeration use for chilled or frozen foods)
  • Transport use had been omitted when it formed part of the significant energy use of the organisation (i.e. Transport was greater than the 10% de minimis ruling)

Some areas where remedial actions had been identified:

  • Organisational structure
  • Sampling approach
  • Calculations to support estimates
  • Reference period and data records
  • Audit analysis
  • No Director and / or ESOS Lead Assessor sign-off

From the findings, it is clear that interpretation, scope, evidence / records and misunderstanding has led to some audit failures. It is important that you understand and fully appreciate your obligations for phase 2 under ESOS and to engage with a competent ESOS Lead Assessor and consultant to support organisations in becoming fully compliant.  Ensure that you remain ahead of the game and assess your organisations preparation and readiness for ESOS Phase 2.

What can you do now?

Carry out ESOS energy audits for the supplies you intend to include in your Significant Energy Consumption.  12 consecutive months of energy data must be provided that includes the qualification date (which falls on 31st December 2018) but not the compliance date.   Figure 1 shows the energy data restrictions.

Figure 1: – Energy Data Restrictions for ESOS Phase 2

It is worth noting that relying on invoices could be a mistake as your audits may require more granular data. Different energy streams can be audited at different times so the workload can be spread to suit your business needs.

If you would like to learn more about ESOS Phase 2 and how to ensure compliance, please watch our free webinar, delivered by our Associate Director, Tilly Shaw.  Alternatively, please call us on 0117 379 0850 or email enquiries@energy-ts.com and speak to one of our ESOS Lead Assessors.

  6. Clause 6 – Planning
  7. Clause 7 – Support
  8. Clause 8 – Operation
  9. Clause 9 – Performance Evaluation
  10. Clause 10 – Improvement

Bullet points for ESOS Phase 2: Issue 2, October 2018

Phase 1 Civil Penalties

Under the ESOS Phase 1, the fines that have been served to organisations for not complying with requirements have been published. Fines range from £1,560 to £45,000.

Compliant

Current compliance listings under ESOS as of the 31st May 2018 have been published with 7,113 organisations or entities listed as compliant under ESOS.
