Important changes for ESOS Phase 3

The Environment Agency has recently announced changes to the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) which will impact organisations that are required to comply with the ESOS scheme.

What has changed for ESOS Phase 3?

  • There will be no fine for late submissions: If organisations miss the 5 June 2024 submission deadline, as long as they have registered their account with the new IT system by 5 June 2024, and submitted their notification of compliance by 6 August 2024, the Environment Agency will not take action. The regulatory enforcement extension period will end after 6 August 2024.
  • Organisations must share more details on the calculation of their energy consumption
  • Organisations must ensure at least 95% of their total energy consumption is covered, which has increased from the 90% that was required in Phase 2
  • They must also include specific information on how they plan to make energy saving opportunities throughout their business, this includes costs, benefits and how they plan to implement them
  • Businesses must submit a yearly Energy Action Plan following their ESOS Phase 3 submission
  • As well as submit a yearly Progress Update which will explore how successfully you are implementing your energy saving opportunities.

ESOS Energy Action Plan and Reporting

One of the biggest changes to ESOS Phase 3, is the introduction of the ESOS Energy Action Plan. The Action Plan will act as an annual progress update, with ESOS participants required to publicly report on the energy saving and net zero actions they have put into place over 12 months.
