Scottish Government announces funding for low-carbon heating solutions

The Scottish Government announced on 23 September that a £30mn fund to create low-carbon heating infrastructure is now open for applications.

The funding, which is available to businesses and organisations to create innovative solutions to heat buildings, is part of a wider Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme being delivered by the Scottish Government. The support will provide financial assistance for up to 50% of the total eligible costs of a capital project – up to a maximum of £10mn.

Scotland’s Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said: “In order to meet Scotland’s ambitious proposed climate change targets, we estimate that nearly every Scottish home – unless already on a renewable heat supply – will need to have a change to its heating system by 2045, if not before.”
