Scotland heat map

The interactive Scotland heat map can be used by business, developers, housing associations, and communities to find out about the heat demand and supply opportunities in Scotland. Please note that the interactive map and its associated INSPIRE download services are currently unavailable (August 2021) as we move to a new provider. Development of the new site, with improved features and expanded download services, is progressing and we are aiming to make it available in autumn 2021. In the meantime, to access data usually provided through the interactive map, please contact the heat map team at

A more detailed heat map dataset is provided to local authorities to help with planning for energy efficiency improvements and low carbon heat in their areas.


You can find out more about the heat map and how to access data using the guidance and documentation on our Scotland Heat Map documents web page.
