Heat Networks Delivery Models

This report, prepared by Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) for the Scottish Government, assesses the potential roles that a range of delivery models (alongside a number of complementary enabling structures / mechanisms) could play in helping to accelerate the pace and scale of heat network deployment.


This report was prepared by the Scottish Futures Trust for the Scottish Government and was completed in May 2023.

The stakeholder engagement which informed the analysis and conclusions in this report took place over the winter of 2022/23, ending in March 2023.

This report was made ready for publication in December 2023.

The Scottish Futures Trust and the Scottish Government are now working together to take forward a number of the recommendations made in this report, and will be undertaking further stakeholder engagement on heat network delivery models in early 2024.
