ESOS

ESOS is the UK’s legislation for meeting the EU Energy Efficiency Directive Article 8. ESOS came into force on 17 July 2014. 

This regulation mandates that “large undertakings’ must produce an energy audit of their entire operation’s energy consumption every four years. The first report must be lodged with the Environment Agency by 5 December 2023.

A ‘large undertaking’ is defined as one with 250 or more employees. Businesses with fewer employees but  with a large financial profile are also included, as are members of groups where  another member meets the definition. Corporate bodies and partnerships, and also any unincorporated body that is conducting trade whether for profit or otherwise, are all subject to ESOS. Public sector organisations are not subject  to ESOS although some universities with significant private funding may well be.

SECR

The UK Energy Industry widely is regarded as the one of the most pioneering and technologically advanced industries in the world and is the very reason that a lot of participants are foreign owned. The secondary effect of the fast rate of new technology and systems within this industry also requires constant changes from the legislature. 

Bureau

Forensic Bill Validation

 

A recent study of the UK energy market revealed that as many as one in five energy invoices are incorrect.

 

PES pride themselves on offering an unrivalled bureau service that uses our inhouse coded e billing systems to automatically scan your business energy invoices, identify anomalies and provide a report to your billing and operations contact who will challenge the suppliers on your behalf.

 

Every six months you will be provided with a validation report detailing how much energy and money has been successfully contested.

The validation system scans over 72 billing elements and also measures unusual consumption's via interval data from the meters as well as typical usage patterns.

 

These algorithms ensure that your billing is consistently managed and bring you piece of mind as to the accuracy of your invoicing.  

Do you know what makes up your electricity price?

With the cost of energy only making up 40% of your unit rate it is more important than ever to have a trusted partner guide you through the complex myriad of charges and ensure that these are applied correctly in your billing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are the other charges?

 

 

 

These are all made up of network charges and subsidies for cleaner generation and the cost breakdown is typically as per below:

Our forensic bill analysis and validation will check all of these factors and dispute any that do not conform to expectations or published tariffs.
