The Transmission Net Zero Fund aims to help vulnerable communities develop their net zero plans to ensure that no one is left behind on the Scotland’s journey to Net Zero.
The Fund priorities are to:
- Enable a Just Transition to Net Zero by supporting vulnerable communities and delivering social, economic and environmental benefits
- Focus on net zero measures which save carbon and provide cost reductions
- Build Net Zero capacity
- Leave a positive Net Zero legacy in the communities we serve
The fund is open to projects that must fall into one these categories:
- Energy efficiency capital improvements in buildings, with a focus on domestic or community owned buildings
- Low and zero emission renewable heating systems and micro- to small-scale renewable power generation (where that power is predominantly designed for use on site), with a focus on domestic or community owned buildings
- Electric vehicle and e-bike transport and infrastructure
- Net Zero skills development – only as an addendum to a project focusing on the above three categories.
