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.
We are supporting Scottish Government across all areas of the Energy Efficient Scotland programme which is forecast to see £10-12bn of investment in Scotland’s buildings over the next 20 years. We are providing input into key areas of the programme to support effective delivery of energy efficiency measures and projects across all building types in Scotland - domestic, public, commercial and industrial. This work is helping Scottish Government to meet its challenge of achieving its 2050 targets.
On delivery, this includes the further development of the successful Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency Framework and support unit, enabling public sector and third sector bodies to lead by example in delivering energy efficiency retrofit projects across their built estate - securing both significant reductions in carbon emissions and energy savings.
So far, the Framework has enabled 19 retrofit projects to be delivered (improving 201 buildings across the local authority, College and the NHS estates) with a total project spend of over c£23m, projected annual savings of at least £2.8m and more than 10,250 tonnes of carbon saved. Five additional projects are currently being scoped, with a further c£12m investment planned across 60+ buildings.
