Energy efficiency update

The UK government announced yesterday that it would scrap plans to require landlords to improve the energy efficiency of their properties. As energy policy is devolved this announcement does not apply to properties in Scotland.

The Scottish Government is expected to publish a consultation later this year on a Heat in Buildings Bill. The bill is expected to set out requirements for property owners in all tenures to improve the energy efficiency of their properties and install heating systems which don’t emit CO2. We will provide members with a summary of the bill’s contents once the consultation is published.
