ESOS Enforcement Update from the Environment Agency

09-26-2016 10:24 AM CET | Energy & Environment

Press release from: TEAM (Energy Auditing Agency Ltd.)

Up to 1,700 organisations are being investigated by regulators of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), it has been revealed.

The Environment Agency says the organisations are being investigated because regulators believe they “may have been” required to participate in the scheme but failed to make a submission before the final deadline.

ESOS is a mandatory requirement for all large enterprises in the UK. If a qualifying organisation doesn’t meet the deadline, they could receive a basic fine of £50,000, plus an additional fine of £800 per day up to a maximum of 80 days.

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: “Following the passing of the original compliance deadline of the 5th December 2015 and the grace period of up to the 29th January 2016, we have been looking at corporate data to identify those organisations that should be participating in ESOS.”

He added: “We will normally use enforcement notices to bring organisations into compliance, serving civil penalties only in the most serious cases. Compliance notices can be served in cases where we suspect a breach and require further information.”

A dedicated ESOS Enforcement Team are now targeting those organisations deemed to be the highest risk. A number of compliance and enforcement notices have already been issued.

A total of 150 organisations who submitted an ‘Intent to Comply Late Notification’ but have not yet submitted Full Compliance Notification, are also being monitored closely.
