ESOS was introduced in the UK to implement Article 8 of the European Union's 2012 Energy Efficiency Directive (EED).  We currently expect Brexit to take place in 2019 which is when the next round of audits will be due.  Where does this leave the current energy efficiency targets?  Unless the government actively takes steps to disapply the current UK legislation, those audits will still need to be done.  Simon Keen explains.
