New energy efficiency standard for social housing in Scotland

It aims to maximise the number of homes in the social rented sector attaining an Energy Performance Certificate rating B by 2032

A new standard to further improve the energy efficiency of homes in the social housing sector in Scotland has been announced by the Scottish Government.

The new Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing post-2020 (EESSH2) aims to maximise the number of homes in the social rented sector attaining an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating B by 2032.

It is higher than the previous goal set in 2014 to be achieved by 2020, with 80% of social rented homes already compliant – and the rest expected to be met by the deadline.
