Times: 12.30 -14.00 [GMT+1 / BST] (12:00 for lunch)


The Scottish Government Draft Electricity policy statement 2010 set out the latest position on Scotland’s future electricity mix including an update on the Scottish approach to Energy Efficiency and Microgeneration as developed in the Energy Efficiency Action Plan.  The Energy Efficiency Action Plan reaffirmed the Scottish Government’s ambitious energy efficiency and microgeneration agenda for Scotland and set out our wide ranging programme of activity on behaviour change, household, business and public sector energy efficiency, infrastructure, skills, and transport.

This framework furthers the governments climate change, economic and social ambitions.  It will drive the cost]effective action required if Scotland is to meet its challenging statutory emissions reduction targets of at least 80% by 2050 and 42% by 2020, as set out in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 and introduces a headline target to reduce Scottish final energy consumption by 12% by 2020, with an indication of how this will be monitored.

This webinar will bring together three feasibility studies related to the adequate sizing and economic viability of solar photovoltaic technology onto current housing stock belonging to three housing associations.  Various housing types were analysed for their adequate orientation and roof restrictions together with the appropriate economic calculations for viable pay back periods in line with technology capital cost, government funding and maintenance costs.

The studies were completed after appropriate filtering of all the housing stock belonging to the three housing associations.  This work was conducted with housing staff who were familiar with the location of homes.  Various building visits followed where a photographic study was completed and various technical drawings were retrieved to aid the calculations.

The reports have been adapted to the recent changes in legislation and government funding by analysing the economic pay back periods and the variation of tariffs.  These reports were conducted at different stages from summer 2011 and the start of 2012 where variations of tariffs have been applied impacting accordingly to the results.
