Heat in Buildings Scotland – New National Scheme

Registrations are open to attend the Digital Supplier Engagement Event for the ‘Heat in Buildings Scotland – New National Scheme’, taking place on 10 February 2022, 9am – 1.30pm. (Registrations close 3 February at 6pm)

The Scottish Government intends to run a procurement exercise to appoint a Managing Agent for the delivery of the ‘Heat in Buildings Scotland – New National Scheme’ (“the Scheme”). This is the successor to the Scottish Government’s current Warmer Homes Scotland programme. Due to go live in 2023, the core of the new Scheme will target households which are in fuel poverty or at risk of being in fuel poverty.

The Managing Agent will be responsible for managing the customer journey as the retrofit coordinator – this will entail identifying the measures which are suitable for the dwelling, carrying out a technical survey, installing the measures, arranging a post-installation inspection and putting in place a service warranty. The measures installed will be mainly insulation, heating and micro generation measures, with a focus on zero emissions heating systems where this is not detrimental to Scottish Government fuel poverty objectives.

Although the intention is to appoint a single Managing Agent to deliver the Scheme, there is likely to be scope for sub-contractor opportunities re. the physical installation of measures across Scotland. As such, suppliers of all sizes are welcome to join the Digital Supplier Engagement Event – SMEs, Supported Businesses and third-sector organisations.
