Consultancy case study

Clean Heat and Energy Efficiency Workforce Assessment project

Our research informed Scottish Government policy around upskilling and workforce requirements to hit decarbonisation targets.

 

The client background

Reaching the Scottish Government’s net zero target by 2045 will require significant uptake of energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating systems in homes and non-domestic buildings. Achieving this will require Scottish supply chains, such as manufacturing and installing, to have the capacity to meet increased demands. On behalf of the Scottish Government, ClimateXChange commissioned LCP Delta to undertake research to assess this market.

 

What the client needed and their key question(s)

The Scottish Government wanted a deeper understanding and robust evidence base of current and future workforce capabilities around energy efficiency and low carbon heat technologies. This would help them to identify the capacity required in future years to meet heat decarbonisation targets and what support might be needed to ensure Scottish supply chains can ramp up for delivery.

 

Our solution

We carried out a literature review and conducted interviews with the supply chain and other key stakeholders.

We thoroughly reviewed the current capabilities and skills along the supply chain of the energy efficiency and low carbon heating technologies in Scotland. We also identified current and future skills gaps, assessed current support initiatives and analysed the potential options to fill these gaps. Additionally, we provided a quantitative assessment of the number of installers required in different heat decarbonisation scenarios.

Our impact

Key lessons drawn from the project were used to inform Scottish Government policy. We presented research findings to Scottish Government officials and provided the full research findings in a report.
