Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme

We launched the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) in March 2015, in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Futures Trust and sector specialists. It is now closed to applications.

It is a Strategic Intervention supported by the European Structural and Investment Funds

It is overseen by the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme Board.

The LCITP aimed to support Scotland's transition to a low-carbon economy. We provided a range of support, from expert advice to financial support to assist the development and delivery of private, public and community low-carbon projects across the country. Its main focus was to assist projects to develop investment-grade business cases that will help secure public and private capital finance to demonstrate innovative low-carbon technologies in Scotland.

The LCITP was designed to create the conditions to attract commercial investment in innovative low-carbon infrastructure projects, which could be replicated elsewhere in Scotland to maximise our potential in the low-carbon sector. It also aimed to contribute towards reducing Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions.
