Elmhurst has released its draft response to the Scottish New Build Heat Standard: scoping consultation.
This consultation focuses on Scottish Government’s approach to regulation of new buildings, meeting the commitment established in the 2019 Programme for Scottish Government to require new buildings to use renewable or low carbon heat.
Elmhurst’s draft response to this consultation has now been released.
|The consultation seeks views in the following areas:
Elmhurst OCDEA Team Leader Hewins said: “Elmhurst is pleased that Scottish Government are consulting on the use of zero emissions heating and cooling systems from 2024. We have always advocated that industry needs a clear roadmap to prepare for changes away from traditional heating systems we have used for years.
“Elmhurst believes accredited energy assessors and the outputs from the national calculation methodologies can be utliised to inform consumers of new technologies and ensure compliance to new standards is achieved. We look forward to further consultations in this area in the future.”
