Question reference: S6W-23670

  • Asked by: Brian Whittle, MSP for South Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 7 December 2023
  • Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 21 December 2023


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-22657 by Patrick Harvie on 16 November 2023, what economic modelling has been completed to understand the potential impact of future demand for servicing of renewable heating solutions on market rates for (a) labour and (b) parts.


No economic modelling has been undertaken. As we continue to engage with the sector, if a need for economic modelling emerges then we will consider it. A key ask of the supply chain has been clarity about scope and timing of regulation which is central to their planning for investment in capacity and skills needed for manufacture, installation and maintenance. This is why we set out our draft proposals on regulation on 28 November.
