4 The basket of greenhouse gases comprises carbon dioxide ( CO2), methane ( CH4) and nitrous oxide ( N2O), for which the baseline is 1990; and hydrofluorocarbons ( HFCs), perfluorocarbons ( PFCs), sulphur hexafluoride ( SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride ( NF3), for which the baseline is 1995. Nitrogen trifluoride was added to the greenhouse gas emissions covered by the Act by The Climate Change (Additional Greenhouse Gas) (Scotland) Order 2015

11 References to “regulation of district heating” within this document include ‘regulation of communal heating’ as set out in the Scottish Government’s consultation on this issue - http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2017/11/6232/downloads

12 Stand-alone non-domestic buildings below 50m 2, temporary buildings with planned use of no more than two years, nondomestic buildings whose function implies low energy demand and buildings sold for demolition are currently all exempt.

25 NRS Estimates of Households and Dwellings, 2016, estimates that there are 2.45m households or 2.58m dwellings. Domestic energy efficiency data presented in later sections of this routemap is based on Scottish House Condition Survey ( SHCS) 2016 data which focuses on household estimates.

28 SHCS 2016. On average, around 74% of modelled household energy demand was from space heating and 13% from water heating.

29 And very small proportions use communal heating, biomass and solid mineral fuels ( SHCS)

48 A Technical Monitoring Report carried out by Ofgem on the UK Government’s Energy Companies Obligation ( ECO) showed that 6.9% of the almost 1.5 million measures installed during the first ECO period between January 2013 and March 2015 were inspected. Of these, 9.9% did not meet the necessary installation standards in the first instance and required additional work to be undertaken. The majority of these failures are not thought to be due to intentional poor performance, but the result of gaps in standards or training provided.
