Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: area-based schemes

We award funding to local authorities to develop and deliver energy efficiency programmes (mainly solid wall insulation) in areas with high levels of fuel poverty. This funding is blended with Energy Company Obligation funding, owners contributions and funding from Registered Social Landlords who may choose to insulate their homes at the same time.

The area-based schemes are designed and delivered by councils with local delivery partners. They target fuel-poor areas to provide energy efficiency measures to a large number of Scottish homes while delivering emission savings and helping reduce fuel poverty.

Since 2013 we have helped to deliver energy efficiency measures to around 78,000 households. Find out more about what we have done below:

Including 2018/19 allocations we have made available £325 million to local authorities. Allocations and expenditure shown below.
