The Scottish Government announced their Heat in Buildings Strategy to reduce emissions in Scotland's buildings and meet carbon emission targets.

They have pledged £1.8 billion in funding to help this transition towards net zero and help homes move from fossil fuel-reliant heating systems towards low-emission systems to help create more eco homes.
