Energy Efficiency and Decarbonisation of Heat in Public Sector Buildings in Inverclyde
In 2018 the Scottish Government launched a 20 year Energy Efficient Scotland programme, Route Map and Transition Programme. Published in conjunction with the Energy Efficient Scotland Route Map, the two year Energy Efficient Scotland Transition Programme offers funding to local authorities to support the development of Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategy (LHEES) which aim to establish area-based plans and priorities for systematically improving the energy efficiency of buildings, and decarbonising heat.
In 2018 Inverclyde Council submitted a successful application for LHEES pilot 2 funding. As part of the pilot programme, Inverclyde Council was required to prepare an LHEES by December 2019, focused on improving energy efficiency and decarbonising heat in public sector buildings in the Inverclyde area. If approved by Inverclyde Council, the LHEES and implementation plan will cover the period 2020 to 2032, including:
- Establishing a baseline understanding of heat and energy efficiency for the public sector estate;
- Engaging with the public sector in Inverclyde to help identify issues and options related to improving energy efficiency and decarbonisation of heat;
- Developing an implementation plan for preferred and viable solutions over the next 15-20 years
