Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. Organisations that qualify must carry out ESOS assessments every 4 years. These assessments are audits of the energy used by their buildings, industrial processes and transport, to identify cost-effective energy saving measures.

eCount is a powerful assessment tool that can be used for an individual building assessment or for undertaking compliance audits across any number of buildings; it focusses on the energy reporting and analysis requirements of ESOS and follows the Good Practice Guidance for measuring energy consumption.

eCount incorporates an auto populate application which can manage and import large amounts of data utilising a quick and simple process. The software provides information for owners and users to understand their building’s benchmark grades, co2 and energy usage. The flexibility of the software provides individual and bespoke data filters that can be set to an organisations particular analysis requirements.
