Policy Update – Important News About ESOS Phase 3 Qualification

Tags : 

An important update for organisations worried about ESOS 3 qualification boundaries

The Environment Agency have solidified rules for the qualification criteria for the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Phase 3, alongside other important updates to the Scheme.

The move to GB Pounds (£) from Euros (€) means that qualification will no longer be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates.

Current Qualification Criteria

Your organisation is required to comply with ESOS if you meet the following criteria:

  • 250 or more employees, OR
  • Turnover £44 million or more AND Balance Sheet £38 million or more

This replaces the previous criteria, which were subject to fluctuations in the £GBP / €EUR exchange rate:

  • 250 or more employees, OR
  • Turnover €50 million AND Balance Sheet €43 million

Does this affect your business?

If you are affected by ESOS, or if you are still unsure how the updates from the Environment Agency might affect you, we can help. Contact Envantage’s experts on 0800 054 2577, email savings@envantage.co.uk or complete our form to ask us a question.

ESOS Phase 2 Compliance - Checklist


Tags : 

If you’ve been keeping up to date with ESOS, you’ll know that the deadline for submitting your notifications of compliance is 5th December 2019. So, why should you be looking at ESOS Phase 2 so early?

(If you haven’t been keeping up to date, keep reading: you probably need to know this.)


On 8th February 2019, the Environment Agency’s ESOS notification portal opened, meaning that qualifying organisations can already complete all the steps needed for full compliance. If you’re not sure whether you are covered by ESOS, the qualification criteria are listed below.

By submitting your notification of compliance early, you will:

  • Be able to spend the rest of 2019 managing your business, without worrying about compliance submission deadlines
  • Avoid fines for non-compliance which can be up £50,000 plus £500 per day, and the risk of being ‘named and shamed’
  • Be best placed to make the savings identified in your ESOS reports
