Heat networks target 2035 consultation: business and regulatory impact assessment - partial

Partial business and regulatory impact assessment (BRIA) to our consultation on the 2035 target for the amount of heat to be supplied by heat networks.

7. Regulatory and EU Alignment Impacts

Article 25 of the 2023 recast of the Energy Efficiency Directive[23], which is due to come into force when it is published in the Official Journal in September 2023, sets out that Member States shall take adequate measures for efficient district heating and cooling infrastructure to be developed as identified in the National Comprehensive Assessment (NCA).

The proposed 2035 target supports further growth of energy efficient district heating in Scotland, and we will review, if appropriate, other heat network targets once more evidence is available, such as Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES) and heat network zones designated by local authorities.
