Stroma have received approval from the Environment Agency to unveil their ESOS Lead Energy Assessor register and a programme to deliver training and certification for assessors who intend to provide services under the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

ESOS has been introduced by the Government as a means to monitor the energy efficiency and energy usage of organisations. There is a mandatory requirement for businesses to undergo an ESOS audit every four years if they employ at least 250 members of staff or have an annual turnover in excess of €50 million and an annual balance sheet in excess of €43 million. The ESOS audits can only be undertaken by a qualified ESOS Lead Energy Assessor.

Stroma’s new ESOS Certification Scheme provides assessors with the opportunity to expand their skillset and help businesses with the implementation of energy-saving measures. Assessors interested in applying to join Stroma Certification’s ESOS Lead Energy Assessor Certification register must have a minimum of two years of professional energy assessment and energy audit experience relevant to the PAS 51215. Stroma is providing existing and new members with a step-by-step application, assessment and training process to ensure assessors receive the support and knowledge required to provide ESOS assessment services to the marketplace.

Applicants are required to undertake a two-day Energy Audit Training which instructs prospective assessors in the BS EN 16247 audit methodology as well as lifecycle cost analysis. Following a practical training element, candidates who have fulfilled all requirements will be added to Stroma’s ESOS Lead Energy Assessor Register once the application documents have been fully assessed.
