For social housing in North Lanarkshire
The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) aims to improve the overall energy efficiency of social housing by 2020.
EESSH set a standard based on a minimum Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of typically Band C or D depending on the type of property and fuel type.
After 2020, a new standard will come into force setting an even higher standard of energy efficiency for social housing to be met by 2032.
Under EESSH2, all social housing must meet, or can be treated as meeting, EPC Band B (Energy Efficiency rating), or be as energy efficient as practically possible within the limits of cost, technology and necessary consent.
More information on EESSH and ESSH2 as well as details of the Scottish Government’s plans for improving the energy efficiency of privately rented and privately owned homes is available on the Scottish Government website.
