Taking the temperature: a review of energy efficiency and fuel poverty schemes in Scotland

    Abstract

    Retrofitting energy efficiency measures in Scotland’s existing housing stock has been central to the Scottish and UK Government’s efforts to reduce consumer energy bills, rates of fuel poverty and greenhouse gas emissions. In Scotland in 2015, energy efficiency was designated a national infrastructure priority. Furthermore the Scotland Act 2016 devolves powers to determine how supplier obligations in relation to energy efficiency and fuel poverty, such as the Energy Company Obligation and Warm Home Discount, are designed and implemented. The Scottish Government have announced that they will introduce Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme (SEEP) in the coming years. This scheme will make use of the new powers over energy
    efficiency funds. Given the current political interest and potential levels of investment, CAS believes that it is important to ensure that the impacts resulting from undertaking large-scale energy efficiency installations are fully understood.
