Following the publication of The Heat in Buildings Strategy in October 2021, The Scottish Government established the Green Heat Finance Taskforce (GHFTF).

The purpose of the Taskforce is to develop a portfolio of innovative financial solutions for building owners in Scotland to ensure that by 2045, Scotland’s homes and buildings no longer contribute to climate change, as part of the wider just transition to net zero.

As part of UKGBC Scotland’s participation in the Taskforce, this workshop will offer the opportunity for members to feed back on concerns and opportunities directly to the policymakers who are shaping the future regulatory environment.

During the session, UKGBC members will hear from the Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Patrick Harvie MSP and other GHFTF members. Our discussion will explore financial barriers and opportunities in the deployment of large-scale commercial green heat solutions in Scotland.
