16. Post-Implementation Review
Refer to Section 14. Within the 2021 Act, the Scottish Ministers must prepare a heat networks delivery plan, setting out how the provisions of this Act, and any other supporting policies, will contribute to increasing the use of heat networks in Scotland.
The reporting periods are every 2 years, and the reports must consider the following:
- how this Act and associated policies have contributed to an increase in the use of heat networks in Scotland in the reporting period,
- what progress has been made in the aggregate heat output of all heat networks in Scotland in the reporting period and, in particular, in meeting the targets specified in section 92(1),
- how the deployment of heat networks in Scotland has contributed to meeting emissions reduction targets set in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 during the reporting period.
Therefore, the impact of heat networks in Scotland will be reviewed and reported on every 2 years in line with the 2021 Act.
