This consultation seeks views on the UK’s approach to meeting Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive requirements through an ESOS.
Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), requires all Member States to introduce a regime of regular energy audits for ‘large enterprises’ (non-SMEs) to promote the uptake of cost-effective energy efficiency measures. These audits must be undertaken by 5 December 2015, and then every four years thereafter.
The consultation seeks views on the UK’s approach to meeting this requirement through implementing a new Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). The Government’s ambition is to develop a proportionate and better regulation approach, which yields real energy efficiency rewards.
