We are working on delivering and managing a wide range of infrastructure and finance programmes that support Scottish Government’s National Infrastructure Mission and can inform policy ambitions for decarbonisation and inclusive growth.
Using district heating as an alternative energy source to supply heat and hot water to the home can go a long way towards alleviating fuel poverty.
As a result, district heating has been identified as a core priority by Scottish Government with the public sector playing a key role as a facilitator of district heating schemes, as well as a significant generator and purchaser of heat.
For the public sector to play its part, we’re actively supporting the Heat Network Partnership by providing financial and procurement expertise to pathfinder projects and are supporting numerous local authorities in the development of district heating initiatives.
