Organisations in scope of ESOS (the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) have less than two weeks to register on the new IT portal, or risk enforcement action from the Environment Agency (EA).

While the compliance notification deadline has effectively been extended to 6th August, it is on the condition that firms register on the portal by 5th June 2024.

MESOS reporting system update

Despite being just two weeks away, the number of registrations so far remains very low. The Manage your Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (MESOS) reporting system has seen around 4,500 accounts successfully created to date, according to the latest EA newsletter. While this indicates progress, it accounts for less than half of the 11,000 firms estimated to be in scope of ESOS .

Who should register in the MESOS system?

All organisations qualifying for ESOS must register an account within the MESOS system to submit their compliance notifications. Even if your organisation does not qualify, it is essential to register and declare your “Do Not Qualify” status.

Organisations are being given a grace period for ESOS compliance, provided they meet two conditions:

  • Registration on the new compliance portal has been completed by the 5 June 2024
  • Organisations submit their notification of compliance by 6th August 2024.
