ESOS Phase 3 Update

Compliance Notification Enforcement Extension Position Statement Changed to 6th August 2024.

The Environment Agency has issued a position statement regarding compliance notification enforcement for Phase 3 of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). 

With the new IT system scheduled to go live on March 19th, there is now a requirement for a two-stage compliance notification process. 

To help participants complete compliance promptly, the Environment Agency has provided this statement after extensive discussions with the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, who lead on ESOS policy. 

For organizations that qualify for Phase 3 of ESOS, the deadline for submitting a compliance notification is June 5th, 2024. It is recommended that organisations aim to meet this compliance notification deadline where possible. 

However, the Environment Agency and regulators for the Devolved Administrations will not take enforcement action against organizations that fail to comply with this legal requirement, provided that they meet the following conditions:

– Registration of the account in the new IT system has been completed by June 5th, 2024.

– Notification of compliance is submitted no later than August 6th, 2024.

-Action Plan Submission no later than 5th December 2024.

ESOS Audit

Several stages must be concluded to complete your ESOS report and notify compliance to the regulator. These include identifying and measuring significant energy use and calculating energy intensity ratios, whilst ensuring audits identify all practical and material energy savings opportunities.

Before notifying the regulator, the report and recommended – and quantified – energy savings proposals must be reviewed and signed off by board-level directors. This should explain – how and when – you intend to reduce energy use, and the underlying assumptions.

The last date to submit your compliance notification is Tuesday, August 6th 2024.

Following notification, you are also required to: maintain documentation, complete an “action plan” (by 5th December 2024) and two subsequent annual progress updates.ARC Insights NewsArticlePlay
