To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish its Heat in Buildings Strategy.


The Scottish Government’s Heat in Buildings Strategy was due to be published earlier this year but was delayed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. It will now be published in January 2021. The draft strategy will follow on from the update to the Climate Change Plan, setting out in more detail our vision and the steps we will take to reduce emissions from heating our homes and buildings, and how we will remove poor energy efficiency as a driver of fuel poverty.
