Scottish Government to ensure all new homes utilise renewable heating from 2024

On 5 January, the Scottish Government confirmed that new regulations will be developed to ensure all new homes will utilise renewable or low carbon heating from 2024.

The move to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions will also run alongside a £30mn investment in renewable heat projects.

Renewable and low carbon heating systems will also be phased in for non-domestic buildings given consent to build from 2024 as part of a number of Scottish government initiatives to help tackle the climate emergency.
