In order to address the barriers and realise the opportunities provided by district heating, we need to take action. The Expert Commission on District Heating’s recommendation set out the key areas to be addressed. The Scottish Government’s Action Plan now sets out the steps we will take in partnership with the wider public sector, business and industry to build confidence in the public sector to drive forward projects, the private sector to invest and in consumers to connect.
The Action Plan sets out the next steps that the Scottish Government is taking in response to those actions and how they will integrate with wider policy development. How we will take forward these actions in a coordinated way is summarised in routemap at the end of the Action Plan.
