In the first webinar on 5 November, which includes a keynote address by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands, our speakers will look at policy, strategy, and the organisations resetting the dial with their ambitious plans for the future.
Now we home in on solutions. First, we look at the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) the aim of which is to support Scotland's transition to a low-carbon economy. It provides a range of support, from expert advice to financial support to assist the development and delivery of private, public, and community low-carbon projects across Scotland. Its main focus is assisting projects to develop investment-grade business cases and providing capital funding that will help secure public and private match finance to demonstrate innovative low-carbon technologies.
You’ll also hear from Warmworks who deliver the Scottish Government’s nationwide energy efficiency scheme, Warmer Homes Scotland. This provides insulation, efficient heating, and renewable technologies in the homes of households who are struggling with the cost of high energy bills. Next comes the Energy Saving Trust about their advice and support programmes followed by Zero Waste Scotland who will talk about the SME Loans Programme. All will be sharing those all-important ‘lessons learned’ and success stories.
