Description


The Scottish Government Directorate for Energy & Climate Change is delighted to invite you to a public consultation workshop event discussing proposals set out in the Second Consultation on Local Heat & Energy Efficiency Strategies, and Regulation of District and Communal Heating.

This is the second of three workshop events across three locations: Edinburgh, Perth and Inverness, to enable as many participants as possible to attend. All three workshops will be the same. You only need to attend one event.

This is the registration page for the Perth event:

If you want to register for the Edinburgh event go to this link:
https://second-consultation-event-edinburgh.eventbrite.co.uk

If you want to register for the Inverness event go to this link: https://second-consultation-event-inverness.eventbrite.co.uk

Please note, to ensure as broad a spread of representation as possible at the events, the number of places at each event available to a single organisation will be limited. Only one place per organisation can be guaranteed. If multiple people from your organisation register for an event in the same location you may be asked not to attend or to attend a workshop in a different city.

Background and context

In January 2017, as part of the broader Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme, the Scottish Government published a high level policy scoping consultation paper on Local Heat & Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES), and regulation of district heating. It was part of a suite of consultations on the draft Climate Change Plan, the draft Energy Strategy and related activity.

Based on the evidence and views gathered from stakeholders, the Scottish Government published a follow-up consultation document that sets out our more specific policy proposals for Local Heat & Energy Efficiency Strategies and regulation of district and communal heating.

The consultation document and supporting information is accessible at:

http://www.gov.scot/LHEES_DCHR_2ndCons

This is a follow-up consultation that seeks views and further evidence on more specific policy proposals that were developed to support:

  • a coordinated approach to the local planning and delivery of energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation programmes within SEEP, we are consulting further on our proposal to create a statutory framework for Local Heat & Energy Efficiency Strategies.

  • appropriately-sited, low carbon, affordable district heating, the Scottish Government is consulting further on the development of a policy and regulatory system which will see district heating develop in a strategic manner, and provide appropriate conditions on the ground to accelerate delivery of district heating and to grow this market. In order to achieve this we are consulting further on a proposed regulatory framework.

These events are an opportunity for interested parties in Scotland to further discuss the implications and opportunities presented in the proposals within this second consultation. We would like to hear your views and give you an opportunity to inform the Scottish Government's approach.

If you have any questions please contact Jamie McIntyre by email jamie.mcintyre(at)gov.scot or telephone.
