ESOS & ISO 50001 go head to head...
Transcript of ESOS & ISO 50001 go head to head...
This webinar concerns the two main routes for compliance with ESOS:
Site and group energy audits – the “standard” ESOS route
An Energy Management System certified to ISO 50001
These two routes can also be combined so we will look at that too
So why are more UK organisations using ISO 50001 certification?
Why is it worth considering the ISO route?
ESOS & ISO 50001
go head to head...
Professor Andrew Geens
Head of CIBSE Certification
ESOS Lead Assessor and ISO 50001 Lead Auditor
Two other routes which are less used and are not considered further in this webinar are:
Display Energy Certificates
Green Deal Reports
Which option is best for you?

ESOS Lead Assessor and ISO 50001 implementation consultant
The standard audit route is often taken by default
Many larger and more energy-engaged organisations will benefit from the ISO route but have not addressed the choice seriously
Many smaller organisations would benefit from clear guidance as to whether the ISO route is appropriate
There is little guidance on how an organisation should go about choosing the route that suits them
ESOS compliance via the “standard” audit route
For a group: establish ownership structure and who is participating
Assess energy consumption of all uses, and identify at least 90% of this which is then subject to audit
Agree which sites or transport will be audited
Carry out energy audits of the identified sites or transport
Complete overall/group audit and report with sign-off by ESOS lead assessor and a participant director
Notify compliance by Dec 5th 2019
Maintain an Evidence Pack for possible inspection/audit
As a globally recognised standard, ISO 50001 certification demonstrates the strongest commitment to energy performance improvement to both internal and external business stakeholders.
Embedding continual improvement
Businesses want a system that will embed continual improvement, ensuring energy saving opportunities are not just identified (as often seen with ESOS energy audits) but acted upon.
Contractual and bid requirements
ISO 50001 is fast becoming a key component of contractual and franchise requirements and is recognised as a key driver for improving tender and bid applications. Businesses are implementing ISO 50001 either in response to these current requirements or in anticipation of future requirements.
Best practice compliance
ISO 50001 provides a best practice framework for identifying and complying with all legal and other requirements related to energy use, reducing risk of non-compliance from the corporate through to site specific level.
ESOS compliance via ISO 50001 for the whole organisation
Establish a strategy with board level reporting and responsibilities
Review and engage with a certifying organisation and any other support
Set up a system for documentation, actions and non-compliances
Hold internal and external audits of the energy management system
Carry out continuing monitoring, reporting and improvement plans
Obtain certification and notify compliance by December 5th 2019
Maintain certification annually and every three years
(surveillance and re-certification)
Combining the two routes – ISO system for part of the organisation
This can be very useful if the ISO route seems attractive but
Not for the entire organisation, or
You don’t have time to do the whole organisation before the next ESOS compliance deadline, or
Some energy uses (say travel) are not included in your ISO scope
The steps are as the previous slide but
The part of the organisation covered by the ISO system is clearly defined
For the remaining organisation the steps for standard ESOS compliance must be followed including sign-off by an ESOS lead assessor before notification of compliance
Compare Actions & Timelines
This is difficult as there are so many variables:
Depends on starting point for either route
Depends on size and complexity of organisation
Depends on reliance on external consultants
EA guidance acknowledges that ISO 50001 goes beyond basic compliance for ESOS, and benefits beyond compliance are achieved in practice
The case for the ISO route is strengthened if:
already have or planning to have ISO 50001 or related such as Environmental, Occupational Health & Safety or Quality
have individual sites or activities which could be ISO certified
have relevant governance policy or are seeking to strengthen board engagement
potential to make use of ISO for public relations or group/international recognition
organisation is also operating in other members states as ISO 50001 is a compliance route in all member states
Note of recent & incoming changes
The ESOS scheme may be changed with announcements from BEIS in late 2018 and but these are not expected to affect this phase:
ESOS “update” absolute requirements e.g. annual?
ESOS integration with CRC end, MGHG and SECR e.g.
ISO impact of new coordinated edition overall
The ISO EnMS is subject to changes including:
ISO 50001 is to be revised in mid 2018 to bring it in line with other/integrated ISO management schemes and to make it more relevant to SMEs but transition will not be required before December 2019
ISO 50006 was introduced in 2014 to clarify baselining and energy performance indicators
The case for the standard audit route is strengthened if:
already have audits completed 2016-19 so reduced need for dedicated audits
required audits fit in with planned works or strategy
no time for ISO 50001
The combined route is useful if the whole organisation can not be certified, or not certified in time for the December 2019 deadline
