Publication cover: Decarbonising heat in homes - audit scope

Scotland’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions halved between 1990 and 2021. But current emissions need to halve again in the next seven years if the Scottish Government is to achieve its target of a 75 per cent reduction by 2030, and to increase the chances of meeting the target of net zero by 2045.

GHG emissions from generating heat in domestic buildings (homes) make up a significant proportion of Scotland’s emissions. Decarbonising heat in homes, the reduction of GHG emissions through energy efficiency improvements and transition to low carbon heating systems in homes, will make an important contribution to reaching the net zero target.
