FS15 - An Investigation of the Adoption of Low-Carbon Technologies by Scottish Housing Associations

Written by: CIC Start Online

"An Investigation of the Adoption of Low-Carbon Technologies by Scottish Housing Associations" by Robert Gordon University and Anderson Bell and Christie

SUMMARY

The starting point for the study was a consideration of what impact incentivisation schemes (in this case particularly feed-in tariffs) had on the adoption of low carbon technologies.

The study developed further, in that it added an objective to assess the feasibility of producing a unified business process (UBP) focused on aiding individual HAs when deciding which low carbon technologies (LCTs) are appropriate to them.

The study involved two housing associations that had both considered the adoption of innovative sustainability technologies, but ultimately made different investment (in the form of purchasing sustainable technologies) decisions.

Key words: refurbishment, domestic buildings, renewable energy
