Phase Two Update

Phase two of The Energy Consents portal is now under development and is targeted to be delivered end of autumn 2016.

The Energy Consents Unit at the Scottish Government are planning significant changes to our public website during 2016 to improve how we deliver our service for Energy Consent applications.

Phase Two will:

  • Improve the convenience and speed of processing by offering a fast, responsive and easy to use online application submission and tracking system
  • Improve engagement by allowing the online submission of representations from organisations and individual members of the public
  • Improve payment facilities by providing applicants and their agents the ability to pay fees online for speed and convenience in a secure and resilient environment

We also have a dedicated email address ECDUOnline@gov.scot this email should be used if there are any specific queries we can answer in relation to the project. Please be aware that it is a small project team who are extremely busy delivering the project but they will endeavour to respond to your query as soon as possible.

Important Update

We can now provide an update on our previous communications in regard to the progress of the Scottish Government Energy Consents and Deployment Unit System Upgrade Project. We have now created our new publication portal and have placed over 40 live cases with approximately 1,400 associated documents online to allow public search and viewing of documents relating to applications for energy consents. This new online publication portal will be opened for public use from Wednesday 29 April 2015. The new portal can be found at www.energyconsents.scot

 

The number of live cases and documents published to the new online portal will increase over time as we quality check and publish the data and documents. We would stress as previously, that a gradual and steady increase in the number and variety of documents published will take place conducted by the case officers who are managing those cases. Case Officers are prioritising publication of these by the amount of likely public interest and also doing so in parallel with managing their case work load therefore your patience is appreciated.
