Energy experts from Kinect Energy Group have offered advice to decision-makers in the catering sector on the upcoming ESOS (Electricity Savings Opportunity Scheme) Phase 2 legislation.
Phase 2 of ESOS will come into effect in December 2019 and will impact all businesses that employ more than 250 people or turnover more than €50m.
ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK, established to implement the EU Energy Efficiency Directive.
Kinect’s engineering manager, Adam Pigott, will share the seven steps towards becoming ESOS Phase 2 compliant as part of a free webinar at 10am on September 27.
Businesses failing to comply could face a fine up to £235,000, whilst those that do, stand to make significant cost savings, become more energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions.
The final deadline for compliance is December 5 next year, but many industry observers, including the Environment Agency, are recommending action is taken now to ensure sufficient time is allowed and to minimise the likelihood of a shortage of qualified assessors.
Kinect Energy engineering manager, Adam Pigott, said: “The aim of this webinar is to raise awareness, inform businesses and separate the fact from the fiction. We want to equip businesses with the relevant information in plenty of time, so they can take action well before the deadline of December 5.
“We will be taking live questions from participants in the webinar and providing a practical, realistic guide in order to ensure that businesses don’t get caught out.”

Businesses that complied with ESOS regulations four years ago, who continue to meet the eligibility criteria, must also renew.
