Book your ticket for Elmhurst's Scotland Conference

Overview

Elmhurst is hosting its Scotland Conference on 10th March at Hampden Park Stadium in Glasgow. The event is an unmissable opportunity to hear from leading figures, including representatives from Scottish Government, on  the recently released consultation: 'Energy Efficient Scotland: Improving energy efficiency in owner occupied homes' and the proposed changes to minimum energy standards which impact the private rented sector in Scotland. 

The proposals have the potential to revolutionise the energy efficiency landscape in Scotland and lead to an increase in demand for EPCs. During the event you will hear from various experts and have the opportunity to pose your own questions to the panel.

The deadline for the Energy Efficient Scotland consultation is 26 March 2020. Elmhurst will be using the views expressed at this event to form part of our consultation response.

What's included:

  • 4 hours CPD 
  • Opportunity to network with energy and housing professionals
  • Opportunity to meet and talk to the Elmhurst team
  • Refreshments throughout the day including a hot fork buffet lunch
  • Free parking at the stadium

Why attend?

The Scottish Government is proposing to set a mandatory energy efficiency standard of band C for homeowners from 2024 onwards. Homes without an EPC would be required to have one. 

Approximately 62% of homes in Scotland are owner occupied and only 38% of those are at EPC band C or better. 

The Scottish Government is also considering whether the standard should be fixed at EPC Band C, or whether periodic review points should be built in, so that the standard can increase over time if necessary to respond to the global climate emergency, or change focus to further encourage uptake of renewable heating as technology and policy develops.

Along with the Minimum Energy Standards, due to come info force in April 2020, the proposals within the consultation will directly affect domestic energy assessors working in Scotland. Elmhurst's conference is a unique opportunity to voice your opinion directly to Government and hear their proposals in full.
