Energy Efficient Scotland transition programme phase 3: form and guidance

Application form and guidance for local authorities for the Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES) pilot programme (phase 3).

The Scottish Government and local government are partnering to explore the introduction of Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES) which would set the strategy and a framework for reducing energy demand and decarbonising the heat supply of buildings in the area covered, across the timeframe of the Energy Efficient Scotland programme. 

We initiated an LHEES pilot programme to allow all 32 Scottish local authorities to trial aspects of LHEES in their regions. Two pilot phases incorporating 23 local authorities have been funded so far as part of the LHEES pilot programme. It is intended that the remaining 9 local authorities will make up phase 3 of the LHEES pilot programme.

We would like to invite the following 9 local authorities to submit an application for a pilot project to test Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES) in their local authority area: 

  • Angus Council
  • Comhairle nan Eilean Siar
  • East Ayrshire Council
  • East Dunbartonshire Council
  • East Renfrewshire Council
  • Moray Council
  • North Ayrshire Council
  • South Ayrshire Council
  • West Dunbartonshire Council 

Detailed guidance, together with the application form, is included in the attached document. 

The deadline for submission of all proposals is 18 October 2019
