Article: 53/1308

A new consultation, launched on 26 March 2019, aims to determine a timetable for ambitious energy efficiency targets for Scotland. The consultation seeks to gather evidence which could support a change to the proposed timeframe to deliver standards for all properties across Scotland in an achievable and realistic way. The consultation closes on 17 June 2019.

As part of the Scottish Government’s wider efforts to meet their commitments under the Climate Change Plan, they also published another consultation on 26 March 2019, which is focused on decarbonising the heat supply to buildings that do not use gas. This will explore the barriers to the uptake of low carbon heat options, the opportunities and challenges for the supply chain, and how to avoid any potential adverse effects on fuel poverty.
