… transmission and distribution losses compared to the current generation and transmission system. Generating heat locally will allow Fife to make the best use of local resources whether that be heat from biomass, (including wood, energy crops and agricultural waste products); heat from air-source, water-source and ground-source heat pumps or using waste heat from industrial processes. Scotland has…

… ways of reducing costs and carbon emissions simultaneously. Typical energy efficiency measures include retrofitting properties with better insulation, installing more efficient space and water heating systems, controls and energy management systems. Climate Fife projects will increase the energy efficiency of Fife’s buildings, assets and infrastructure to reduce energy consumption, associated…

… and energy transformation losses by making smart choices about the most appropriate energy sources for a given time and location, and by joining networks and storage options together so that they work holistically. This programme of work will support the increased deployment of district heating and other heat networks, smart grids, energy storage systems (such as battery banks, heat stores, seasonal…

… Efficient Scotland Programme (a 15 to 20-year programme to transform the energy efficiency and heating of Scotland’s buildings so that, wherever technically feasible, and practical, buildings are near zero carbon by 2035). Given that the replacement rate for Fife’s buildings is less than 1% a year, and that older properties tend to be leaky, draughty, costly to heat and inefficient – the challenge…

… made considerable progress in decarbonising its electricity supply and is aiming that by 2020 11% of Scotland’s heat demand and 100% of Scotland’s electricity demand equivalent will be produced from low carbon sources. The Scottish Government is aiming to decarbonise 100% of Scotland’s heat demand by 2050 under current targets, and for a 14% share of transport fuels to be renewable by 2030 under…

… generation networks run at a temperature close to ambient ground temperature). This should not compromise the ability of the system to run at the optimal temperature for the energy source used at the outset. 4.25 Heat networks based on natural gas CHP systems should be supplemented by heat from renewable sources wherever feasible. Integrating heat pumps into district heating can deliver large CO2…

… (but are not limited to): • ground, air and water source heat pumps, • solar photovoltaic (electricity), • solar thermal (heat), • small scale wind turbines, • standalone wind turbines, • biomass power and heat, • small scale hydro power, • geothermal energy, • micro CHP, and • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems. 4.30 Where the minimum 20 per cent carbon reduction required under Policy D2 (9) is achieved…

… the new “Future Homes” standard is fully 16 implemented7, and expects the supply chain for these technologies to develop rapidly in the next few years. When appraising heat pump technologies, at least two heat sources (from air, water and ground) should be considered and a separate appraisal of each presented. 4.35 Appraisals of heat pumps should take account of the high efficiencies…

… services for space heating/cooling and hot-water systems, ventilation and internal lighting). Unregulated emissions are those arising from energy use other than for building services, such as appliances, cooking and IT equipment. 2.5 The energy and waste hierarchies (see Figure 1) set out the steps that should be followed to make development more sustainable. The key principle in both hierarchies…

… adequate consideration to heat distribution networks as the primary source of energy. The energy statement for such developments will therefore need to include an appraisal that either sets out that a heat network will provide the primary source of energy for the development or clear evidence that it is not feasible and/or that an alternative would be more sustainable. 4.16 Where a heat
