The Scottish Government has published its Heat in Buildings Strategy, setting out a pathway aiming to cut greenhouse gas emissions from homes and buildings, which currently account for about one-fifth of Scotland’s emissions, by more than two-thirds by 2030. This will require over one million homes and the equivalent of 50,000 non-domestic buildings to convert to zero emission heat by 2030.
The four strategic priorities contained in the strategy are:
- supporting those least able to pay
- investing in strategic technologies in low or no regrets areas
- showcasing net-zero leadership and to share learning through early adoption in key areas of focus
- investing in innovation and demonstration to drive forward competitive advantage
