The Liveable City seminar: Low Carbon City – Next step for energy efficiency and heat supply


Scotland’s Climate Change Plan, published in February, aims to reduce emissions from Scotland’s buildings by 23% for domestic and 59% for non-domestic buildings by 2032. This means that by the middle of this century all buildings in Scotland will need to be near zero carbon where feasible..

This will be an opportunity to make Scotland’s buildings cleaner, and more sustainable, comfortable and affordable for their occupants and users – householders, the public sector and business. With case studies from Denmark and Scotland, we will explore the new and mature technologies available now to provide clean electricity and heat for the city.
