HeatSource is a collaborative knowledge hub exploring opportunities in low carbon heat; bringing together knowledge, partners and resources in order to help ready the sector for net zero targets.
HeatSource is a £300,000 programme funded by Scottish Enterprise that will better equip companies involved in manufacturing, installation, training and the wider supply chain to deliver zero emissions heating systems.
The project is on a mission to support the decarbonisation of Scotland’s built environment, including the creation of our new online information hub aimed at helping industry maximise the opportunities around new zero carbon heating.
Last year the Scottish Government published its Heat in Buildings Strategy, setting out a number of targets for the buildings sector to achieve, which contribute to the 2045 climate change commitments. Among the priorities is the widespread deployment of zero emissions heating systems, of which only 11% (around 278,000) homes in Scotland currently use.
HeatSource aims to review the sector’s current position to help identify both the knowledge gaps and the key opportunities for businesses to help deliver low carbon heating solutions across Scotland.
Built Environment – Smarter Transformation will work closely with Highlands and Islands Enterprise, South of Scotland Enterprise, skills agencies, Local Authorities and trade bodies to gather knowledge and signpost to relevant avenues for further guidance or funding.
