Scottish Government invests in social housing energy efficiency

The Scottish Government announced on 5 November that it has invested £3mn in funding in technology like underfloor heating, ground source heat pumps and solar panels to be installed in almost 900 social rented properties.

Grants to pay for the work will be given to eleven social landlords through the second round of the Decarbonisation Fund.

Housing Minister Kevin Stewart said: “This funding will support our work to remove poor energy efficiency as a driver of fuel poverty, as well as helping meet our climate change targets.”
