Public bodies are excluded from the scope of ESOS, however public body status in the HEI sector does not universally apply. This reflects different funding levels from public and private sources. ESOS has been implemented on the basis that it applies to HEIs that self-declare as private sector and are sufficiently large to trigger ESOS qualification.
If your organisation is defined as a public body (contracting authority) in: • Regulation 3 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 in England, Wales and Northern • Ireland for the first compliance period, replaced by Regulation 2(1) of the Public Contracts • Regulations 2015 for the second and subsequent compliance periods • Regulation 3 of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2012 in Scotland for the first compliance period, replaced by Regulation 2(1) of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 for the second and subsequent compliance periods • if your undertaking is subject to an insolvency procedure • if you do not meet the qualification criteria.
Where you are part of a corporate group and only parts of the group fall into the categories above then the rest of the group will be required to participate in ESOS if they qualify. There have been two previous phases of ESOS, and we are now currently in Phase 3 of the ESOS scheme. Phase 3 includes some changes that resulted from a government consultation published in July 2022. This also included the announcement of a Phase 4. Businesses must determine whether they qualify for the scheme by the Qualification Date of 31st December 2022. If you are required to comply, you will need to appoint a Lead Assessor, who will prepare the necessary Evidence Pack which must be signed off by them and by the Board of Directors.
• Identify and measure their total energy consumption for all energy classifications. • Carry out energy audits to identify and assess energy savings opportunities. • Report compliance to the Environment Agency every four years. The most common routes to compliance are: • Display Energy Certificates • Energy Audits • ISO 50001 Energy Management System
A combination of these can be used but they must cover 95% of the significant energy consumed by the organisation (energy used by buildings, transport and industrial processes). Complying with ESOS can be a demanding process. It can involve collecting and analysing significant amounts of data along with planning and undertaking energy surveys, reports, and the preparation of the evidence pack. You must then ensure you register your compliance with the Environment Agency on or before the final compliance date of 5th December 2023. To ensure you meet the Phase 3 compliance deadline, we recommend you contact Green Zone Surveys who are ESOS Lead Assessors and can manage the process for you.
