The Existing Homes Alliance Scotland welcomes the commitment from the Scottish Government to take forward a Warm Homes Bill in this parliament. Support for the Warm Homes Bill also featured in several political party manifestos. This proposed Bill should provide the statutory foundation for the new fuel poverty target and strategy, and for Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme (SEEP). It should also tackle regulatory barriers to those programmes.
We wish to ensure the Bill addresses barriers and creates opportunities to bring low-carbon and affordable warmth to all households in Scotland. The Existing Homes Alliance has produced a policy summary and a set of detailed briefings proposing measures for inclusion in the forthcoming Warm Homes Bill.
