Scottish Council Act on Energy Efficiency Programme

THE North Ayrshire council, Scotland, are planning to improve the energy efficiency of 14 council buildings this year.

The Daily Record newspaper reports that community centres and schools among other facilities in the region will benefit from lighting improvements, boiler replacement, heating control improvements and draught proofing.

The target is to achieve annual savings of between £80,000 to £100,000 through reduced utility bills, as well as reducing carbon emissions by about 400 tonnes per year.

The programme starts as the council’s cabinet decided to accelerate its energy efficiency plans thanks to the availability of the new Scottish Government’s “Non Domestic Energy Efficiency Framework” (NDEEF).

The council has a fine record of climate action as they have reduced the local authority’s carbon emissions by 12% through a coordinated efforts to promote environmental behaviour change throughout the council.
