Behaviour change is a vital element of the energy efficiency across the economy needed on the road to net zero, often at lower cost than installation of physical measures or improving the savings of installed measures. There is evidence that Lead Assessors and Energy Auditors may not be fully considering behaviour change as an important opportunity to reduce both energy bills and emissions. 

Therefore, there is a pressing need for upskilling in this area as assessors prepare for the next ESOS Phase. The Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO) online training course has been designed to equip Lead Assessors and energy auditors to identify and implement behavioural opportunities. The course is run on a not-for-profit basis by the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA) and the Energy Institute. It also provides CPD relevant to the continued learning that ESOS Lead Assessors should be doing to keep their knowledge up to date.
