Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategy (LHEES) pilot programme: synthesis evaluation

This report presents findings from a synthesis evaluation of Scotland’s Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategy (LHEES) pilot programme, which involved pilot projects, delivered by all 32 Scottish local authorities. LHEES will set out long-term plans for energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation for all buildings in each local authority area, and will be crucial in delivery of national emissions reduction and fuel poverty targets.

The pilot programme involved three distinct phases, each testing the LHEES development process and considering data sourcing and resource requirements. There has been some variation in the profile of LHEES across the 3 phases, with phase 2 focused on specific building sectors and phase 3 on areas of high heat demand or off-gas grid. The synthesis evaluation sought to bring together findings from across all three phases, and to identify learning points for the future rollout of LHEES.
