Scotland Policy Conferences

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

October 2018

This timely seminar considered the next steps in implementing Scotland’s £54.5 million-funded Energy Efficient Route Map.

Delegates looked at Government priorities in the area and its wider climate change policy, along with the potential economic benefits of energy efficiency.

They also considered potential ways for overcoming technical and regulatory challenges in the establishment of low carbon heating - including the likely impact on Scotland’s energy networks - and lessons learnt from Queens Quay District Heating Network.

Further sessions examined the roles of local authorities, designers and funding bodies in decarbonising the built environment and improving energy efficiency standards - including the next steps in retrofitting and financing major projects - and looked at realising The Scottish Government’s aims of tackling fuel poverty and making warmer, greener and more efficient buildings by supporting businesses and homeowners.
