Energy Management in Yorkshire & the UK
ESOS participants can be auditing for the 2nd compliance period now!
ESOS Phase 2 has started – Carrying out your energy audits.
Are you aware that Phase 2 of ESOS has already started? What does this mean for you? It means that you can start working on your energy audits and identification of energy savings opportunities now.
If you know that you will qualify for Phase 2 there is no reason why you shouldn’t start doing your energy assessments now. You will not be able to carry out the assessment of your total energy consumption (TEC) as this has to include the qualification date of 31 December 2018, however where you know that an energy supply will be included in your significant energy consumption (SEC) you can do the audit work on this supply. The audit needs to have at least one year’s energy measurement, but this can be from any time between 6 December 2014 and 5 December 2019. The audit can use data that has been collected at any time during this period provided that the audit itself is carried out no later than 24ths months after the data period and the data has not already been used for an audit in Phase 1. Different energy streams can be audited at different times so the workload can be spread better to suit your business needs.
Starting now can:
- Help with planning your energy audits
- Minimise disruption
- Minimise potential problems
- Potentially reduce costs
Further details on what needs auditing and how to do it are available in section 5 of the ESOS Guidance
Energy Surveys using ISO 50002 methodology.

Why Do You Need Energy Assessment?
Energy usage reduction is a justified hot topic of our times. Manufacturers have not been slow to produce a plethora of different types of energy saving equipment utilising various technologies. Some of these are sold on the back of a rudimentary survey and with only a single type of product as a solution. As engineers, BKW Energy Solutions Ltd don't advise clients to make changes to their system without first gathering all the relevant information. Only then can energy-management decisions be reliably made.
The purpose of a full assessment is to look at all the factors that determine first if a supply with its associated load types is a viable proposition for energy reduction, and then to establish the type of action and/or corrective equipment will give the best return.
The assessment needs to look at the types of load and the percentage of the total that they represent - e.g. what percentage of the load is HF lighting (High Frequency)? What type and how much of the total is HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)? What types of transformer are installed and what are the tap settings? What aspects of the installation might restrict the choice of type of corrective equipment? Is PFC (Power Factor Correction) equipment installed and if so, what type and what is its useful output?
These are some of the items that need to be evaluated in order to arrive at a meaningful conclusion. In other words, the quality and thoroughness of the survey is directly proportional to the success of any implemented corrective measure. E.g. we've surveyed sites where re-tapping the transformer achieved over 90% of the savings claimed by a Voltage Optimiser manufacturer.
As independent specialists our reports include the freedom to recommend any type of energy saving, corrective action or remedial technology from any manufacturer.
