Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme (SEEP) - Phase 2

The Scottish Government has designated energy efficiency as a National Infrastructure Priority, the cornerstone of which will be Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme (SEEP) – a 15 to 20 year programme. SEEP will help local authorities to pilot new and innovative approaches to energy efficiency with community groups and businesses, helping reduce costs and improving warmth in homes, schools, hospitals and businesses. The Programme for Government commits to investing more than half a billion pounds  to SEEP over the next four years setting out a clear commitment to develop this programme with substantial annual funding. By 2035, through SEEP we will have transformed the energy efficiency and heating of our buildings so that, wherever technically feasible, and practical, buildings are near zero carbon.


The Scottish Government’s consultation on Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme runs until 30 May 2017 and can be accessed using the following link: Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme;

Alongside the SEEP consultation, Scottish Government are also consulting on a draft Onshore Wind Policy Statement; Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies, and Regulation of District Heating; These consultations provide focus on specific areas of the energy system and complement the consultation on the draft Energy Strategy, which can be accessed here.
