Companies must prepare to start energy monitoring under ESOS
Energy management and monitoring systems are among the best options available for UK companies that must comply with the requirements set by thes upcoming Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), expert analysis argues.
The ESOS scheme is mandatory for all the British companies that meet a strict set of criteria and, under its provisions, firms are required to carry out comprehensive energy assessments that must cover energy consumption for buildings, processes and transportation.
Each of these assets must be measured separately in order to account for and identify areas consuming at least 90% of the total energy consumption. The main aim of this scheme is to help company executives and energy managers gain a very clear and accurate picture of where and how their energy is being utilised, the associated costs and the related opportunities for increased savings and efficiencies.
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.
The ESOS scheme is providing a significant opportunity for UK businesses to employ best practice techniques in their energy monitoring and consumption.
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.
