7. The Scottish Government's Climate Change Delivery Plan, Table 1, June 2009, indicates that a reduction in emissions of 4.3 MtCO2e is required from the heat sector between 2006 and 2020. This is equivalent to an emissions reduction in the (non-traded) Heat sector of 51% from 1990 levels, and is the contribution required from Heat in order for Scotland to reduce total emissions by the 42% required in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act by 2020. However, the analysis assumes that the EU moves from a 20% to a 30% target so that sectors governed by the EU Emissions Trading System (the "traded sector") - electricity and heavy industry - achieve greater reductions. If the EU were not to move to a 30% target greater reductions in the non-traded sector, including in heat, would be necessary.
