Friends of the Earth Scotland response to the Scottish Government consultation on Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies and Regulation of District Heating

We research and campaign for actions that contribute to tackling the threat of climate change. Shifting our economy away from dependency on fossil fuels is critical in responding to the climate crisis and Friends of the Earth believe that this transformation is an opportunity to build a fairer, more equal and socially just Scotland.

We believe that if this is to happen, plans should be made for the transformation of specific economic sectors which should be driven forward by the Scottish Government as part of the implementation of the Climate Change Plan. District Heating and Energy Efficiency are two such sectors which will be central to the delivery of ambition targets.
