Scottish Government District Heating Loan Scheme

The Scottish Government's district heating loan fund provides loans for both low carbon and renewable technologies to help organisations implement district heating projects to benefit local communities.

Low interest loans of up to £500,000 per project (interest rate of 3.5% for lower risk projects) will be made available to be repaid over a period of up to 15 years. The scheme is open to local authorities, registered social landlords, small and medium sized enterprises and energy services companies (ESCOs) with less than 250 employees.

See the Energy Saving Trust website for more details.
