Heat in Buildings Strategy – Skills Requirements

If the situation in islands is recognised within the proposals, we believe there is a good opportunity within the sector to grow good, skilled jobs and career paths, contributing to island sustainability and population growth, and creating a more circular island economy.

Investing in local skills and capacity within islands, will also increase access to energy efficiency measures and national support initiatives for island households, which currently suffer the highest levels fuel poverty in Scotland but have difficutly accessing support due to a number of barriers including a lack of registered contractors.
