THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will consider the next steps in implementing Scotland’s £54.5 million-funded Energy Efficient Route Map - including the latest announcement of £2 million - which sets out measures to make homes, businesses and public buildings more energy efficient.
The seminar takes place following the Government’s consultation on adding detail to the Route Map framework, and the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee’s consultation on the potential role and remit of a Publicly Owned Energy Company - including a possible function as a coordinator of energy efficiency initiatives.
It will be an opportunity for delegates to examine the impact and priorities for improving energy efficiency in Scotland, particularly in the context of The Scottish Government’s long-term climate targets and also follows the introduction of the Fuel Poverty Bill to The Scottish Parliament.
Delegates will discuss the latest thinking on tackling the challenges in developing Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies - including in promoting and supporting innovation, increasing collaboration and sharing best practice, and will consider lessons from Queens Quay District Heating Network.
They will also discuss potential ways for overcoming technical and regulatory challenges in the establishment of low carbon heating - including the likely impact on Scotland’s energy networks.
Further sessions will examine the roles of local authorities, designers and developers in decarbonising the built environment and improving energy efficiency standards - including the next steps in retrofitting and funding major projects - and will look at meeting The Scottish Government’s aims of tackling fuel poverty and making warmer, greener and more efficient buildings by supporting businesses and homeowners.
