Businesses are advised to up their ESOS compliance efforts
Businesses likely to be included in the forthcoming ESOS scheme are strongly advised to step up their compliance efforts in order to meet the government’s energy audits deadline and avoid fines.
Under ESOS provisions, companies will have to be fully compliant with the scheme’s requirements by December 2015, by in order to do so, they’d need at least one year’s worth of accurate energy consumption measurements. In other words, the latest date to start measuring energy consumption is the 5th of December 2014.
In order achieve the aforementioned goal, companies can take four compliance routes (ISO 50001, the international standard for energy management; ESOS assessments; Display Energy Certificates; and Green Deal Assessments).
One of the most interesting approaches is ISO 50001 compliance, internationally recognized as the “best practice methodology for energy efficiency”.
It supports organisations in implementing a flexible Energy Management System (EnMS) that shows where energy is being used and wasted, where the most savings can be made and crucially, helps them realise those savings, unlike the ESOS assessments.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
