Sydenhams achieve ESOS compliance
Leading independent timber & builders merchants, Sydenhams, have a long tradition of supplying timber and building materials throughout Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Oxfordshire, Avon and the Isle of Wight. Established in Poole in 1874, Sydenhams now incorporates a timber engineering business and supplies building needs throughout its network of 28 branches across the UK.
IU ENERGY RECOMMENDATION
Sydenhams qualify for the government’s mandatory Energy Saving’s Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and contacted IU Energy after a personal recommendation was made from a similar business who had achieved ESOS compliance through IU Energy.
Sydenhams prepared well in-advance of the compliance deadline, to ensure compliance was achieved by 5 Dec 2015. IU Energy were commissioned to conduct the in-depth energy audits across Sydenhams’ network of buildings and transport vehicles to produce a mandatory report, listing the savings identified. IU Energy worked closely with Sydenhams to ensure the work was completed on time and submitted to the Environment Agency.
The scheme requires large undertakings – employing 250 staff or more and/or have a turnover in excess of £38.9m and a balance sheet of £33.4m – to conduct mandatory energy assessments every 4 years.
Those organisations who qualify for ESOS who do not submit their reports by the 5 Dec deadline, or at least notify the EA that they have appointed a ‘lead assessor’ (such as IU Energy) and the work is underway by the end of January will receive a ‘hefty’ fine, up to £50,000 (read more here).
