Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) – 12th April 2024


Manage your Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (MESOS)

The Manage your Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme reporting system (MESOS) went live on Tuesday  19th March 2024. If you have not yet registered, we recommend you do so as soon as possible in  preparation for completing the notification of compliance. 

As previously detailed, MESOS is being released in two stages. The initial release allows all participants  to register their Phase 3 user and organisational accounts, and the second release will enable participants  to complete and submit their notifications of compliance. This second release is scheduled, subject to  satisfactory final testing, to be by the end of April. 

MESOS Webinar – Wednesday 24th April 2024 

Following the webinar on Phase 3 changes which took place in January, the next webinar will provide an  update on the new “Manage your Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme” (MESOS) reporting system.  

The session will look at the next release which will enable participants to start completing and submitting  notifications of compliance. Additionally, it will cover Action Plans and other areas where we have received  questions from scheme participants. 

Compliance Notification Enforcement Extension Position Statement

With the new IT system now live and the requirement of a two-stage compliance notification process, the  Environment Agency have taken steps to help participants complete compliance in a timely manner by  providing this position statement: 

For organisations qualifying for Phase 3 of ESOS, the deadline for submitting a compliance notification is  the 5th June 2024 and organisations should still look to meet this compliance notification deadline where  possible. 

However, the Environment Agency and Regulators for the Devolved Administrations will not take  enforcement action against you if you do not comply with this legal requirement, provided that you meet  both of the following conditions: 

  • Registration of your account in the new IT system has been completed by the 5th June 2024.
  • You submit your notification of compliance by the 6th August 2024. 

This regulatory enforcement extension period will cease after the 6th August 2024. 

Registering a “Do Not Qualify” Status 

To notify the Environment Agency that you do not qualify for ESOS Phase 3 then you can do so within the  new Digital service. The first step will be to complete the registration process (available now). When the  second release goes live you will then need to complete only the first task of the Notification of Compliance. 

This will ask if you qualify for ESOS with two options of Yes or No. If you select the No option, you can  add text as to why you don’t qualify and then submit your response.
