GDF SUEZ Energy UK has launched a new service to help businesses meet the requirements of the new Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
The new law means all large businesses must keep details of all the energy and fuel they use and look at how they could use less.
They must then give this into The Environment Agency (EA) by 5 December 2015. If they don’t, they might have to pay a penalty up to £90,000.
Making the ‘evidence pack’ for ESOS could be difficult and the new service means it will be easier to put together.
The service has two parts; the first phase looks at the existing energy and fuel consumption of the company and advises on the most resource-efficient way to meet ESOS requirements.
The second phase carries out the audits needed and provides a report advising energy-saving solutions for the business, which provides the evidence of compliance needed in the ESOS scheme.
Sales Director at GDF SUEZ Energy UK David Hall said: “We believe many large companies are unaware of this new obligation and with all the audits and evidence required by early December, there really is no time to lose.”
The audit must provide information about a business’s total energy use and expenditure across all buildings, industrial processes and transport.
