Complying with the EAS can be a headache, and without the right advice and support throughout the process, captured organisations are at significant risk of failing to meet their obligations.
ETS will guide you through the entire process, smoothing the compliance cycle and ensuring that your business not only complies, but is in a strong position to benefit from the tangible cost and carbon reduction opportunities that result.
Turning the cost of compliance into a commercial opportunity.
The Energy Auditing Scheme (EAS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme and legal obligation for organisations in Ireland that meet the qualification criteria. Organisations that qualify for EAS must carry out an EAS assessment every four years to remain compliant.
If you, or any part of your corporate group meets either of the following conditions, you will need to comply with EAS Regulations.
- Employs 250 or more people.
- An annual turnover in excess of €50m, and an annual balance sheet total in excess of excess of €43m.
Organisations that fail to comply with the requirements set out by EAS may be liable to compliance and enforcement activities.
Whilst fines were not introduced for EAS Phase I, it is anticipated the current punitive measures are fines up to €5,000 on prosecution. SEAI may also publicly “name and shame” parties that do not comply.
Our in-house EAS Lead Assessors have assisted numerous businesses across all sectors to comply with their obligations.
We will work alongside you through the whole process, advising you on the best route to compliance, helping you gather the required data, making sensible recommendations for your energy use, and summarising everything clearly for your Directors.
