What about ESOS and Brexit?

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme was introduced to meet the requirements of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, so many businesses are asking whether ESOS will apply post-Brexit.

The short answer is: Yes. ESOS is underpinned by UK legislation so it’s here to stay for the time being.

Post Brexit, the EU laws we abide by will be transposed into UK domestic law. That means that ESOS will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future, and organisations are still required to comply with ESOS phase 2 by the Dec 5th 2019 deadline.
