Energy Efficient Scotland: Improving energy efficiency in owner occupied homes

Closes 9 Apr 2020

Opened 19 Dec 2019


Improving energy efficiency and reducing the demand for heat in owner occupied homes will play an important part in helping to reduce both greenhouse gas emissions and fuel poverty. This consultation outlines proposals to tackle these issues. It sets out details of an energy efficiency standard for owner occupied homes to reach, and suggests that it should be legally binding. It also sets out how homeowners can be helped and
supported to bring their homes up to the standard.

Why We Are Consulting

We are asking for views on the detail of setting the energy efficient standard for owner occupied homes in Scotland. This includes what the standard should be, when it should be introduced and how compliance with the standard could be checked and enforced.
