If you work for a large enterprise, then it’s probably been a few months now since you received your ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) audit report. If you’ve found it really useful and you’re powering ahead with energy saving schemes, that’s fantastic.
Unfortunately, I suspect that for many organizations, this is not the case.
Either way, you can make your report work better for you.
An energy management system based on ISO 50001 would really bring your ESOS audit to life. The ESOS audit provides a lot of valuable background information; the energy management system provides a framework for action. Together, they can be an incredibly powerful tool.
I audited a lot of ISO 50001 energy management systems in the run up to the December ESOS deadline. Every single client I saw had an ‘aha’ moment at some point during the process, when they found or worked something out that was of real value to them. I have yet to speak to a client who has had a similar experience with their ESOS audit on its own.
And, as expected, those organizations that chose to have ESOS audits done last year are beginning to talk to us about setting up an energy management system to give them a framework for action.
So, what are you going to do now? Let your ESOS report gather dust, or take action and make a real difference to your organization?
