The Action Plan sets out a framework for the Scottish government’s wide-ranging programme of activity on behaviour change, household, business and public sector energy efficiency, infrastructure, skills and finance. It is a key component of our broader approach to meeting Scotland's climate change targets and securing the transition to a low-carbon economy in Scotland. Key actions relating to energy efficiency include to:
• improve the energy efficiency of all our housing stock to meet the demands of the future;
• establish a single energy and resource efficiency service for Scottish businesses;
• develop a public sector that leads the way through exemplary energy performance and provides the blueprint for a low-carbon Scotland;
• reduce transport energy demand, transforming how we use our transport systems;
• promote infrastructure improvements, e.g. by developing a sustainable heat supply;
• ensure that people are appropriately skilled to take up the opportunities.
