Question reference: S6W-24680

  • Asked by: Liam McArthur, MSP for Orkney Islands, Scottish Liberal Democrats
  • Date lodged: 19 January 2024
  • Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 2 February 2024


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-23961 by Patrick Harvie on 15 January 2024, how many terawatt-hours of heating and cooling these existing projects will deliver.


In order to obtain accurate data from projects funded through Scotland’s Heat Network Fund and the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme we need to gather information for a reasonable time period post commissioning of the project to ensure accurate data is collated. As we do not have a full data set, we are unable to provide a reliable figure at this time.

In addition, due to heat supply agreements currently being developed by a number of projects, Scottish Government is unable to provide accurate estimates of heat supply for pre-capital projects as figures supplied by projects are estimates only and could change in the future.
