Below are some of our recently updated projects.
- with the policy challange: Low carbon energy
This set of reports explores the changes in the energy policy landscape and how they will impact domestic energy consumers. It aims to support the Scottish Government's work on consumer engagement and protection as part of Scotland’s low-carbon transition.
This study collects, analyses and maps data relating to previous district heating feasibility studies in Scotland. District heating feasibility study data, obtained primarily from industry stakeholders, was analysed to identify common barriers restricting district heating development and to map study locations.
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.
Scotland is setting a net zero greenhouse gas emissions target for 2045 and many other European countries have similarly stretching...
Pros and cons of using different definitions of cost effectiveness in relation to energy efficiency investments in homes and non-domestic buildings.
The Scottish Energy Strategy sets out an ambition for 50% of all energy consumed in Scotland to come from renewable sources by 2030. One of the actions to achieve this is developing a bioenergy action plan.
The way we generate, distribute and consume energy is changing, and many observers anticipate accelerated changes ahead. This project presents the results of a UKERC/CXC survey of UK energy experts and stakeholders.
An evaluation of the HES Homecare pilot, tested the Energycarer approach to tackling rural fuel poverty in two rural areas.
The opportunities for, and implications of, Scotland moving towards smart local energy systems that are driven by sustainable decarbonising energy resources.
