Question ref. S6W-04440
Asked by: Liam Kerr, North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 18 November 2021
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-03371 by Patrick Harvie on 27 October 2021, how it defines "renewable heating systems", and what specifically is (a) included and (b) excluded in this definition.
Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 30 November 2021
The Scottish Government has set out the range of technologies that it considers to be low or zero emissions heating systems – and which includes a range of renewable heating systems – at page 16 of the Heat in Buildings Strategy.
The Strategy can be accessed at: https://www.gov.scot/publications/heat-buildings-strategy-achieving-net-zero-emissions-scotlands-buildings/
As set out in the Heat in Buildings Strategy, the Scottish Government will consult in detail on our approach to regulating heat in buildings during 2022, which may include further discussion of those technologies which will, or will not, be compliant with future standards.
