Energy Efficient Scotland- New consultations released

The Scottish Government have announced two new consultations around ‘Energy Efficient Scotland’ and ‘The future of low carbon heat’.

Energy Efficient Scotland: Consultation: seeks to gather evidence which might support a change to the proposed time frame to deliver standards for all properties across Scotland. It builds on earlier consultations on energy efficiency and fuel poverty which Elmhurst fully contributed to.

The future of low carbon heat for off gas buildings: a call for evidence: seeks evidence on the technologies and the actions necessary to support the decarbonisation of the heat supply of buildings that currently do not use mains gas as their primary heating fuel.

The Scottish Government state:

Energy Efficient Scotland – Consultation:

“This consultation considers how any possible uncertainties associated with target setting and implementation can be overcome. It also sets out the suite of legislation that the Scottish Government will bring forward to support delivery of Energy Efficient Scotland; seeks views on the recommendations of the Short Life Working Group on Skills and Supply Chain; and explores what additional incentives could be put in place to support growth of the district heating market.”

Low Carbon Heat – Call for evidence:

“Scotland’s transition to a more prosperous, low carbon economy is already well underway. Decarbonising the way we heat our buildings is a fundamental part of this transition and important if we are to achieve our climate change targets and ambition for all Scotland’s buildings to be near zero carbon by 2050. The call for evidence is divided into three parts: the existing market for low carbon heat, including barriers to uptake; the various technologies that may have a role to play; and the role of the government in supporting the decarbonisation of the heat supply.”

Elmhurst Energy’s Technical and Operation Director Stuart Fairlie: “We at Elmhurst are fully aware of the road map that Scotland has set out and we welcome this new consultation and call for evidence. As always we promises to share our response with our members in order to stimulate thought and encourage others to respond. The strategic goals are clearly set by Scottish Government and we hope that all responses gathered allow more of the detail to be clear to all stakeholders.” 

Both the ‘Consultation’ and ‘Call for evidence’ close on the 17 June 2019.
