Gaining value from ESOS audits
A briefing paper from BRE in collaboration with ESTA (Energy Services & Technical Association) addresses the opportunities that an ESOS audit (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) offers and how organisations can benefit from them. It provides guidance on how ESOS compliance processes can be optimised to save costs and reduce risks. It is free to download from the link below.
Co-author of the paper, Dr Andy Lewry, principal consultant with the sustainable-energy team at BRE, said, ‘The business and financial value that energy efficiency delivers is considerable. ESOS compliance would therefore not be seen as a tick-box exercise but rather a great opportunity to harness and optimise that value.’
Robin Hale, director of ESTA, said, ‘Businesses should take maximum advantage of the simple solutions identified in ESOS reports. Implementation will mean better control and management of energy consumption, which is when businesses can then see the real benefits — not only in terms of profitability but also environmentally and socially.’
