The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme – ESOS – is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for all large undertakings in the UK. Qualifying organisations must carry out audits of energy consumption, with the first assessment due by 5 December 2015.
As part of a broader outreach programme, DECC hosted four roadshows in Durham, Bristol, Manchester and London during autumn 2014. The aims of the roadshows were to build awareness of ESOS, the benefits of going beyond compliance by implementing energy efficiency opportunities and to gather feedback on the wider business energy efficiency policy landscape.
Independent analysts were contracted to help facilitate the roadshows, capture the feedback from them and produce the reports on the findings.
