Energy Managers must respond to ESOS sooner rather than later
Energy Managers must respond to ESOS sooner rather than later if they are to comply with the mandatory Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme.
ESOS (The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) is a mandatory energy assessment and energy saving identification scheme for large undertakings and their corporate groups.
Envantage are recommending companies affected by this scheme should consider investing now before the 5th December 2015 deadline.
What must we do?
A brief overview:
Measure total energy consumption across:
Transport- Freight and business travel in company and employees vehicles
Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations.
Report compliance to the Environment Agency by 5th December 2015
Before notification to the Environment Agency, the ESOS assessment must be conducted or reviewed by a lead assessor and reviewed by a board level director.
Envantage have a wide range of solutions to help energy managers achieve the requirements for ESOS.
Please contact Envantage to discuss compliance in more detail.
Measuring total energy consumption – Envantage remove the time consuming burden for Energy Managers collecting meter readings from many Electrical, Gas and Water supplies by implementing the Envantage ENMAT (Energy Monitoring and Targeting) solution. ENMAT is a web based, energy monitoring system presenting automated energy related data into meaningful charts and graphs. ENMAT not only reports on energy consumption, powerful alert triggers warn energy managers of consumption deviation, such as excess usage or consumption much lower than the defined baseline. Energy Targets can be implemented ensuring that Energy Managers can manage what they measure.
A range of Smart Metering and Data Logging hardware is also available.
In a survey conducted by the National Energy Foundation in partnership with the British Institute of Facilities Management at the end of 2013, the findings suggested that ‘metering and monitoring tools to help improve the use of energy are still not widely used’.
The Carbon Trust reports that large businesses have the ability to save 15% on energy bills through increased efficiency and it is ‘not uncommon’ to see this figure rise to 25%
