Low carbon heat

Discover how district heating can lower carbon emissions, cut costs and reduce fuel poverty.


Heating and cooling Scotland's buildings accounts for over 50 per cent of our total energy consumption. District heating replaces the traditional individual heat source per building model with a shared resource that distributes hot water around a whole town or city through a network of underground pipes. Such systems deliver a number of benefits including:

  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Cheaper heat – helping to alleviate fuel poverty
  • Future-proofing your organisation from energy scarcity and potentially escalating prices

A district heating project is a huge investment    of time and money, and you want to go into it fully equipped with the facts and figures. The District Heating Scotland website www.districtheatingscotland.com offers advice on costs and technologies as well as resources such as guidance documents and case-studies. It will also keep you up-to-date with the latest news on funding opportunities and networking opportunities at low-carbon related events.”
