… across the 8 domestic property categories modelled here is a consistent contributor to overall emissions. Cost-Effective and Cost-Neutral measures such as high efficiency combination boilers, insulation (wall, loft and floor) and thermostatic controls all reduce emissions significantly; there is however, a natural intrinsic emissions ‘floor’ to domestic heating without significant evolution…

… not include Scope-3 (extra territorial emissions). Scope Definition 1 Emissions from sources located within the city boundary 2 Emissions occurring as a consequence of the use of grid-supplied electricity, heat, steam and/or cooling within the city boundary 3 All other emissions that occur outside the city boundary as a result of activities taking place within the city boundary Table…

… for an overview and data on the performance of each sector. Domestic Sector: We find that Edinburgh’s domestic sector remains (in relative terms) recalcitrant to emissions reductions efforts. Scotland’s overall reliance on natural gas for heating provisions – and lack of substantive phasing and investment into the electrification and ‘pooling’ of heating resources – mean that provision of heat

…% of domestic stock in Edinburgh was built before 1950 and 1985 respectively, inhibiting EPC recommendations for upgrades that could limit emissions attributable to heating provisions. For example, far less than half of domestic properties in Edinburgh can be applied effectively with cavity- wall, loft or floor insulation forms; 59.70% of properties currently have no wall insulation…

…, and in our carbon-reduction scenarios. This is a combination of many factors (projected increases in absolute house numbers, relative stagnation in gas emissions factors, etc.) but is largely attributable to the realisation of all eminently available efficiency gains in heating and lighting provisions. Whilst out with the scope of this summary report to detail, many of Edinburgh’s characteristics…
