Next steps for Energy Efficient Scotland - decarbonising heat, building standards and economic impact

Central Edinburgh

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will be an opportunity for key stakeholders and policymakers to examine the next steps for the recently published Energy Efficient Scotland Routemap, designed to meet energy efficiency targets in The Scottish Government’s Climate Change Plan.


Delegates will discuss policy priorities for decarbonising Scotland’s heat supply, including the development of Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies and a regulatory framework for district heating. Delegates will also discuss technical challenges for the establishment of low-carbon heating including the potential impact on Scotland’s energy networks.


Further sessions will look at proposals within the Routemap aimed at decarbonising the built environment including the viability of potential energy efficiency standards for existing residential and non-residential buildings.
