Large businesses in south Lincolnshire are being warned about new lawas which require them to review their energy and fuel costs.

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) means any organisation with at least 250 staff or just over £39 million turnover must carry out an assessment of its electricity, gas, heating and transport use to see if it can improve efficiency.

Initial ESOS reviews must be done by December 5 2015 and organisations that fail to do so could be heavily fined by the Environment Agency.

Ashley Baxter, director of Market Deeping energy firm Hydrostat, said: “ESOS should be welcomed as an opportunity to identify potential cost savings and to promote environmental good practice.”
