Effective Transport Energy Audit for ESOS

Event Date: August 24, 2015 at 9:00 am Event Location: Holiday Inn Rugby - Northampton M1, Jct. 18, Crick, Northampton, NN6 7XR

The UKAEE, in collaboration with Elmhurst Energy is offering the AEE’s successful two day workshop training again on effective transport energy audits.


This course is aimed at persons who are already a Lead Assessor or are intending to become Lead Assessor, internal or external to the company being assessed in order to be comfortable doing a transport energy audit as required by the UK Government's Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) which is response to Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive. Under this scheme all large enterprises are required to undertake a mandatory energy audit of 90% of an organisation's energy use in buildings, process and transport by 5th December 2015.

Therefore, Conor Molloy of Authentic Energy Management Services (AEMS) - the Trainer -  will provide you with the practical and technical skills required to undertake a transport energy audit to your ESOS planning and delivery.
