Below are some of our recently updated projects.
This report examines the extent to which building-level energy storage technologies could help to reduce household energy costs when installed alongside zero-carbon heat technologies.
This scoping study examines how Scottish Government policy can contribute in a targeted way to tackling the intersectional impacts of climate change, conflict and gender.
Hydrogen is a versatile energy vector that can be used in a range of applications without emitting carbon dioxide at the point of use. This study considers how the cost of producing green hydrogen and the supply chain could develop to 2045.
A report linking policy and data on characteristics, location, activity and greenhouse gas emissions for the non-domestic stock in Scotland.
A set of Scotland-specific whole energy system scenarios. These scenarios demonstrate three qualitatively different routes for Scotland to meet its emissions reduction targets.
An analysis of direct, point-of-use greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with zero carbon heating technologies.
A report on the purpose, structure and use of Green Building Passports (GBPs), along with the main barriers and opportunities when considering their possible introduction in Scotland.
The potential for agroforestry to reduce net GHG emissions in Scotland through the Woodland Carbon Code
This report assesses the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through different forms of agroforestry. Agroforestry combines trees and agriculture on the same plot of land.
This project synthesises the best state of knowledge on the effect of management practices on soil carbon sequestration in permanent, managed Scottish grasslands and modelled potential application.
A review of the current capabilities and skills along the supply chain of the energy efficiency and low carbon heating technologies in Scotland, The research identifies the skills gaps and analyses the potential options to fill these gaps to meet the targets set out in the Heat in Buildings Strategy.
This research explores the available data for climate change action on Scottish islands, especially in relation to climate accounting exercises and good practices in dealing with the climate change emergency.
Scottish saltmarsh, sea-level rise, and the potential for managed realignment to deliver blue carbon gains
An assessment of the potential for managed realignment of Scotland’s coastline to create suitable areas for saltmarsh habitats within the intertidal environment specifically for blue carbon benefits.
