What is the Scottish Government’s Heat Generation Policy Statement?
The draft Heat Generation Policy Statement (HGPS) sets out how low carbon heat can reach more householders, businesses and communities through a clear framework for investment in the future of heat in Scotland. It discusses how Scotland might reduce the amount of energy used for heat, diversify sources of heat, provide increased security of heat supply, greater local control and reduce the pressure on household energy bills.
The Scottish Government is committed to building partnerships with the private sector, local authorities and communities to support the development of low carbon heating networks. HGPS represents the latest step in this work.
