What is ESOS and are you compliant?
ESOS is the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme – this is a mandatory energy assessment scheme put in place by the government for organisations in the UK who have over 250 employees or a turnover of over €50 million (around £44,845,000).
ESOS was introduced by the UK government as a result of an EU initiative and legislation to obligate large companies to report on their energy use and efficiency.
The first two phases are already complete, and as well as helping to reduce the environmental impact of large businesses, it’s estimated it will save businesses as much as £1.6 billion by 2030.
ESOS audits are only necessary for companies who are not covered by ISO 50001, and look to find cost-effective measures to reduce energy costs both in the short and long term.
What can I do to reduce energy consumption?
The most obvious way is to reduce the amount of energy used – including electricity, heat and vehicle fuel.
Examples could be:
- Making sure vehicles are regularly maintained
- Installing energy monitoring tools
- Replacing long-distance meetings with video-conferencing
How can ADS Window Films help?
Old or poor glazing can let lots of heat out of a building. Instead of resorting to costly double glazing installations, window films can keep heat inside a building in the winter months and reduce the levels of solar heat during the summer – reducing both heating and air conditioning use and cost.
And window films easily fit within the ESOS requirements of cost-effectiveness with a payback period of around 5 years.
On a practical level, window films are quicker and easier to install too, meaning less disruption to those using the building.
With a wide choice of window films available, businesses can also take advantage of increased privacy, reduced solar glare and lower levels of UV rays, improving conditions for everyone using the building.

We contracted ADS to fit a series of different types of window films to our two story office. We could not recommend ADS highly enough. Their service, professionalism and efficiency in fitting was second to none. We are really pleased with the results and the switchable film particularly, is a real talking point.

Brilliant firm, they have now done 2 of my cars and a fantastic job on my house. Before you speak to anyone about getting your windows done speak to these guys.
I spent ages reviewing different companies to make sure I found the best place to tint my windows and ADS is definitely that!
They have done a superb job on my Ford Focus. Really professional service. The film quality is second to none. I went for the premium film and although it’s perfectly dark on the outside, inside I still have perfect visibility.
I would recommend ADS to anyone. Very impressed.
Fantastic service, professional and knowledgeable staff , nice clean waiting area with free wifi!!! And a lovely mug of coffee .This is the only place we go to have our vehicles window tinting done. So far they have done the tints on 4 of our cars!!
Professional from start to finish – Adam the installer rang to say he was running a little late and kept me informed. When arrived he was polite, professional, clean and tidy – sorry the access to the windows weren’t the easiest. When he left you’d never know he’d been in our offices except the excellent window films and no complaints from the staff – result!
ADS were quick to respond to my initial enquiry and were able to fit my work in between jobs. They kept me informed, met times advised and were professional and courteous.
