Housing association owned renewable, low carbon, and energy storage technologies in Scotland
The Energy Saving Trust (EST) has been appointed by the Scottish Government to provide updated information on renewable energy installations and energy storage installations that are owned by Scottish housing associations (HAs).
This is part of the Scottish Government’s work to monitor progress towards its renewable energy and climate change targets. To carry out this work the Energy Savings Trust (EST) are conducting a survey on renewable technologies and energy storage technologies owned by your housing association and others in Scotland. The information EST collate will be used to update the community and locally owned renewables database and accompanying report.
The report will be published on the EST website in late autumn and will be used by the Scottish Government to monitor progress towards its new target for 1GW of community and locally owned renewable energy to be operational by 2020.
Given the purpose of the database and report it is vital that EST accurately represent the contribution that housing associations are making in this area. As a result, SFHA issued out surveys on behalf of EST to the developments staff of all SFHA members. IF you haven’t yet completed your survey or did not receive it, please email Research Officer Janine Mckenna at – Jmckenna@sfha.co.uk
If you have any questions about the survey, survey results or any other queries on the database, do not hesitate to contact Leyla Usmani on 0131 555 8693 or at Leyla.Usmani@est.org.uk. Thank you for taking the time to assist us in this year’s data collation.
