92% increase in number of average energy efficiency homes in Scotland


Bill Bowman (North East Scotland) (Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party) asked the Scottish Government what action it has taken to improve the average band D Energy Performance Certificate rating in the residential housing sector.

Kevin Stewart provided this information:

  1. By the end of 2021, we will have allocated over £1 billion pounds since 2009 on tackling fuel poverty and improving energy efficiency.
  2. This year alone we have allocated £145 million to improving the energy efficiency of Scotland’s building stock.
  3. 46% of dwellings were rated C or better in 2017, up from 24% in 2010.
  4. The number of dwellings rated below band D reduced from 27% in 2010 to 13% in 2017.
