    I know its probably not in the same league, but, surely an opportunity was missed when DECs were recently introduced for “public Buildings” between 500-999SqM to help with this, Why then have they been given a validity of 10Yrs? Are not DECs the first stage of an energy audit that could be built upon yearly or every 4 yrs. Why does this government spend so much time re-inventing the wheel?
    This will give the training companies another “Cash Cow” to milk.

    How about adding a requirement that an executive summary of the results, any recommended improvements and any implementation plan(s) are delivered to the board and shareholders along with the following annual report. If a plan was put in place this would then be updated in subsequent years.

    This would help stop busy management forgetting about recommended improvements and focus minds on the business case (or not) for such such measures without excessive red tape.

    DEC are not properly policed that is one reason behind the fact that DECs are not been renewed as they should. Also DEC’s are not carried out on some government buildings as some legal buff sees away in not having a DEC completed on their buildings.

    ESOS is mandatory with the environment agency policing the scheme lets hope they will prosecute offenders rather than oh deary me you have been a naughty business person i will have to fine you if you dont get a ESOS done 10 years leter still saying the same thing.

    Come on Ed Davey what are you man or mouse.
