Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) – 30th April 2024

The notification of compliance functionality has now gone live within the MESOS system also, allowing all registered users to submit accordingly. In order to carry out this action you must have registered an organisation account within the MESOS system.

In order to initiate and submit your notification of compliance please follow the steps below:

Action Plans/Progress Reports

Participants are required to set an action plan for future energy saving measures. The action plan must include:

  • What participants intend to do to reduce energy consumption, and when they intend to do it.
  • Whether this was a recommendation from an ESOS assessment.
  • Projected savings and how these were estimated.

The action plan must be submitted by 5th December 2024, to cover from 6th December 2023 to 5th December 2027.

Participants are required to provide an annual progress report about progress against action plans. The progress update must include:

  • Which energy saving actions participants completed.
  • Estimated savings from the completed actions.

The deadline for the first progress update is 5th December 2025, and for the second progress update is 5th December 2026.

Compliance Notification Enforcement Extension Position Statement 

With the new IT system now live allowing all users to complete registration and submit their notification of compliance, 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. 

If you would like to notify the EA 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, then 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 do not qualify and then submit your response. Please ensure where possible you provide sufficient detail to confirm the statement.
