To ask the Scottish Government how many rural homes in each local authority area have received support from the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland area-based schemes.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 14 March 2018
We do not hold information on the urban/rural status of households assisted through our Area Based Schemes. We do publish a breakdown of installs by local authority to provide information on regional delivery.
The information for 2013-14 can be found at http://wwt gov.scot/Resource/0046/00466702.pdf
The information for 2014-15 can be found at http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/sites/default/files/HEEPS%2014-15%20report.pdf
The information for 2015-16 is not published but is shown in the following table:
Argyll and Bute
Dumfries & Galloway
Perth and Kinross
This information includes all properties improved through the Area Based Schemes, including properties owned by social landlords which Scottish Government funding does not cover, but which is carried out at the same time in mixed tenure projects which use a blend of Scottish Government, social landlord and UK Government Energy Company Obligation funding.
