There has been a question looming around universities and whether they comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS); the UK’s approach to meeting Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive. The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) requires all large organisations in the UK to achieve compliance across their estate before 5 December 2015.

In this blog post, Carbon Credentials covers:

  • Universities and ESOS Compliance – What does the guidance state?
  • What do the Public Contracts Regulations (PCR) state?
  • Are student loans classified as finance from a contracting authority?
  • Next Steps
