This report details a study to produce a set of ‘air and energy accounts’ for Scotland for all years from 1998 to 2018, equivalent to ONS UK Environmental Accounts tables on Emissions and Energy. It supports implementation of the policies and proposals within the current Climate Change Plan published in 2018.
This study supports emerging policy aimed at the development and deployment of low-carbon heat networks (or district heating) by examining potential waste heat sources that have received limited attention in Scotland.
This evidence review examines Scottish consumers’ awareness of and attitudes towards low-carbon heating technologies and the consumer drivers and barriers to their take-up.
This report examines the role that grid-scale battery storage could play in providing a resilient, affordable electricity network and in furthering Scotland’s net-zero transition.
This report was commissioned to help the Scottish Government assess and report on the alignment between its investment in infrastructure and Scotland’s climate goals.
CXC commissioned the James Hutton Institute to develop a free, easy-to-use tool for land managers to enable them to compare the measured organic matter and carbon content of their topsoil to typical values for Scotland.
This study identifies the indicators which could support the monitoring of Scotland's soil health and measure the vulnerability of Scottish soils to climate change in future.
Drawing together what we know about Scots' attitudes to climate change and the merits of different ways to engage them on the issue.
This short study updates an earlier analysis of the available land area that might be suitable for planting new woodlands. It finds the amount has increased by 10% to an estimated 2.96 million hectares.
This study provides a baseline best estimate of the potential for property flood resilience (PFR) and current uptake. Potentially around 81,000 properties may benefit from some kind of PFR measure.
A feasibility study into whether manure/slurry exchanges could be an effective tool in helping cut greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
This evidence review considers the potential for nitrogen and urease inhibitors to support greenhouse gas emission reductions from fertiliser in Scotland.
