The EU Energy Efficiency Directive aims to drive improvements in energy efficiency across the EU. Article 8 includes a requirement that all large enterprises undertake energy audits by 5 December 2015 and every four years thereafter. The UK Government has developed the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and will affect up to 7,300 organisations. This CBRE briefing document provides the fact and figures surrounding this imminent piece of legislation.
