Stroma Certification's ESOS Certification scheme is designed to certify ESOS Lead Assessors in line with the requirements of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). Our ESOS Register is approved by the Environment Agency on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

ESOS Lead Assessors can also sign off improvements works as having been carried out using an appropriate methodology aligned to ESOS Scheme Guidance.
