Scottish Energy Efficiency Action Plan

Last updated: 1 July 2021

The Action Plan sets out a framework for the Scottish government's wide-ranging programme of activity on behaviour change, household, business and public sector energy efficiency, infrastructure, skills and finance. It is a key component of our broader approach to meeting Scotland's climate change targets and securing the transition to a low-carbon economy in Scotland.     Key actions relating to energy efficiency include to:

- improve the energy efficiency of all our housing stock to meet the demands of the future;

- establish a single energy and resource efficiency service for Scottish businesses;

- develop a public sector that leads the way through exemplary energy performance and provides the blueprint for a low-carbon Scotland;

- reduce transport energy demand, transforming how we use our transport systems;

- promote infrastructure improvements, e.g. by developing a sustainable heat supply;

- ensure that people are appropriately skilled to take up the opportunities.
