The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (Scotland) regulations 2020: ICIA

Island Communities Impact Assessment (ICIA) for the Energy Efficiency (Domestic Private Rented Property) (Scotland) regulations 2020 and draft associated guidance.


24. The impact assessment has helped us to develop an understanding of some of the challenges island communities face in improving the energy efficiency of properties in the domestic private rented sector and also the relationship with fuel poverty.

25. These regulations are intended to tackle the energy efficiency of the poorest performing homes in terms of energy efficiency in the PRS, and to contribute to the aim of the wider Energy Efficient Scotland Programme to make our homes and buildings more energy efficient and to transition heating systems to renewable or low carbon sources will be critical.
