Did you know that the UK is already in Compliance Phase 2 of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)?

Commercial organisations who meet the ESOS Compliance criteria only have until 5th December 2019 to undergo an ESOS audit and fulfil the requirements of this Government mandated energy obligation.

Who should attend?

Our training course will cover the current guidance and recent updates to the ESOS legislation. ESOS energy audits can only be signed off by a qualified ESOS Lead Energy Assessor. This course is pertinent to already certified Lead Assessors and other professionals looking to get involved with ESOS compliance work.

Those considering ESOS certification for the first time may be from an energy, environmental, sustainability, inspection, surveying, buildings, facilities, transport, logistic, process, chemical, installation, renewables and management background.

ESOS Lead Assessors can be internal or external to ESOS qualifying organisations. ESOS Energy Audits have variety, as do the people who conduct them!
