Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 23 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many projects from (a) rural and remote areas and (b) the rest of Scotland have been funded by the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme, broken down by how much funding they received.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 27 April 2017

The Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme was launched on 20 March 2015. It is a collaborative partnership led by the Scottish Government, working with Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Futures Trust and Resource Efficient Scotland.

The Programme focuses on supporting the acceleration of low carbon infrastructure projects across the public, private and community sectors to develop investment grade business cases to help projects secure public and private capital finance. The project expenditure provided shows committed capital spend as at 3 April 2017, given the innovative nature of the projects actual capital spend will likely be subject to change at individual project level.
