Heat Networks (Scotland) Bill


About the Bill

The purpose of the Bill is to encourage greater deployment of heat networks in Scotland, in order to help reduce emissions from heating homes and buildings.

The Bill will also contribute towards Scotland’s target to deliver 11% of non-electrical heat demand from renewable sources by 2020 and the Scottish Government’s target that 50% of all energy consumption come from renewables by 2030.

This Bill was introduced by the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson MSP, on 2 March 2020.
