Home Energy Efficiency Programme ABS allocation per authority: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

FOI reference: FOI/18/01563
Date received: 4 June 2018
Date responded: 8 June 2018

Information requested

Informaiton from the Home Energy Efficiency Programme ABS (HEEPS:ABS) allocation per authority per year and the respective spend per council per year.


I have included the information that you have requested in an attached Spreadsheet.

The spreadsheed shows the allocatied funding, as well as the Final Spend for all local authorities.

For 2013/14 and 2014/15 the funding allocation is a combination of funding allocated directly through a needs-based model agreed with COSLA and additional funding made available for councils to bid for. For subsequent years it represents the needs based model agreed funding only as the additional funding element was removed.

Please note that not all councils took up the full allocation or during the financial year handed funding back which was recycled within the area based schemes or other programmes.

The final spend for 2017/18 by authority is not yet available as the funding rules allow councils to commit expenditure against projects approved in 17/18 to be completed by the second half of the 18/19 financial year.

The HEEPS:ABS scheme has ran since the 2013/14 financial year.
