Home Energy Efficiency Programmes - Energy Efficient Scotland: delivery report 2018 to 2019

Sixth annual summary report of the HEEPS programme which includes the outcomes achieved from the 2018-2019 programme and an overview of cumulative progress since 2013.

Section 2: HEEPS: Warmer Homes Scotland (HEEPS:WHS)

Warmer Homes Scotland (HEEPS: WHS) is the second element of HEEPS and offers fabric measures (such as insulation) as well as heating measures to improve the energy efficiency of the Scottish housing stock and to sustainably reduce fuel bills.

Delivery (WHS)

Warmer Homes Scotland is the Scottish Government's national fuel poverty scheme. As a key part of the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland, it is at the forefront of the Scottish Government's efforts to tackle fuel poverty by providing home energy efficiency measures to households who are living in, or at risk of living in, fuel poverty. The scheme achieves this by providing measures, including insulation, heating and micro-generation, to those households who are most in need of help to heat their homes.

Warmer Homes Scotland takes a 'whole house' approach to energy efficiency, often installing multiple measures to ensure homes are warmer and more affordable to heat. More than 40 measures are available under this scheme including new energy efficient boilers combined with thermostatic heating controls, Air Source Heat Pumps, Solar PV and loft and cavity insulation.

The scheme is being delivered on a regional basis by Warmworks

(including a separate Islands region) to ensure that all households, including those living in more remote parts of Scotland, get the same level of service.

The 2018/19 annual review of Warmer Homes Scotland is available on the Scottish Government website:
