The Building Research Establishment (BRE) has collaborated with the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA) to produce a new guide to help companies comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

The guide, dubbed ‘Gaining Value from ESOS Audits’, has been aimed at businesses who qualify under ESOS’ remit and do not already have energy saving measures in place, and aims to instruct them how to both comply with the scheme and take advantage of potential efficiency measures.

BRE has claimed that while the scheme and its auditing process has been put into place to help companies save money, most regard it “purely as a cost or a time-consuming burden”. The paper has been produced to shed more light onto its benefits.

It outlines the basic principles of ESOS and offers guidance on the four main routes to complying with it whilst also touching onto other themes such as display energy certificates, ISO 5001 awards and non-domestic Green Deal assessments.
