In 2014, the UK introduced the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) to implement requirements under the Article 8 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (mandatory energy audits for large companies/non-SMEs).

This webinar presented the methodology used in the evaluation and its key findings. It then ended with a broader discussion on policies to expand business energy efficiency.
