With only 4 months to go the compliance clock for ESOS is ticking down rapidly but market activity still appears to be very mixed. Last month:

  • The Environment Agency issued a second warning to those who qualify under the ESOS Scheme, as 73% of companies who qualify are yet to start mandatory audits and 61% still need to appoint a lead assessor.
  • Reports showed that 88 companies must comply every single day in order to meet the deadline and avoid a fine. With there being only 750 Lead Assessors, each assessor would need to complete 2 audits per week until December.
  • While at the same time success stories are already starting to come through.

Are you are one of the companies who haven’t started yet, or are you still at the early stages of the process? If so, don’t waste your precious remaining time with spreadsheets, there are a number of software solutions out there which can aid you in collecting, analysing and storing the data you need.

If you’re not sure what the data requirement for ESOS are check out the blog I wrote for 2Degrees back in April: “The dos and don’ts of managing the data requirements of ESOS.”

While, my latest Blog at 2Degrees gives you 5 ‘time saving’ reasons on why when it comes to ESOS you should skip the spreadsheets: “ESOS: 5 Reasons to Skip the spreadsheets”

On the 31st July 2014 the Welsh government launched an update to their Building Regulations. This latest revision is the first version of the standard in which Wales has its own Building Regulations that were separate from England.

I recently blogged on 2Degrees about the dos and don’ts of managing ESOS data requirements, which you can read here: https://www.2degreesnetwork.com/groups/2degrees-community/resources/dos-and-donts-managing-data-requirements-esos/. As everyone is focused on the practicalities of ESOS data collection and auditing, it may have passed the attention of some that there is a requirement to keep an evidence pack for 12 years! […]

The average car makes thousands of decisions a second on our behalf. Buildings, our most expensive assets, need to catch up. Cars in the 1970s had very little technology. Today, the average car uses lasers, radars, stereo cameras, satellites and even windshield wiper detectors, to constantly figure out the best next course of action, making […]

By 2050, 70 per cent of the world’s population will live in a city. Demand for energy, water and other services will reach potentially unsustainable levels. Unless we use the economies of scale presented by people living in such close proximity to cluster energy needs together in ways that actually reduce energy consumption, resource use […]

The UK’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) requires approximately 10,000 qualifying organisations to undertake energy audits that include 12 months of verifiable data. But what is the best way to manage such a substantial amount of data? Everyone is talking about ESOS, but what do its requirements really mean to your organisation when it comes […]

We’ve recently had the pleasure of being involved with the creation of the latest IET (Institute of Engineering Technology) technical briefing.
