Strengthening the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme

Strengthening the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme

The UK Government is seeking your views on how the Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) can be improved.

Views are welcome on the following options to improve the scheme:

  • improving the quality of audits through increased standardisation of reporting requirements
  • the inclusion of a net zero element to audits
  • requiring public disclosure of high-level recommendations by participants

They are also seeking views and evidence on 2 additional options to improve the scheme, potentially in the longer term:

  • extending the scope of the scheme to include medium sized businesses
  • mandating action on audit recommendations


Closing date: 28//09/2021
