An important date to be aware of for your ESOS phase 2 audit is 31 December 2018. This date must be included in your 12 months’ worth of energy data.
So, if you start Phase 2 now, this date will be included, and you will reduce the risk of missing deadlines and you will avoid fines.
One of TEAM’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme’s lead assessors, Justine Grant, has some learnings from the ESOS phase 1 to share to help you get off to a good start.
It’s helpful to store all related documents together electronically to include:
If benchmarking is not possible due to a lack of sub-metering for a building on a campus, then site level benchmarking would be acceptable.
When the guidance gives an example of how you could present ESOS assessment findings (see A.7.2 of Complying with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme), which is not a template and does not need to be used, understand that it is a template and it does need to be used. Mainly because any ESOS Evidence Pack will be audited against the only guidance available.
