Energy Efficient Scotland: Area Based Schemes (EES:ABS)

Scottish Government has awarded grant funding to all Local Authorities in financial year 2020-21 to continue work under the Area Based Schemes.

This funding is awarded to Local Authorities to develop and deliver solid wall insulation programmes to improve the energy performance of  homes across Scotland, therefore reducing household energy bills and lowering carbon emissions in the housing sector.

The Energy Agency manages the Area Based Schemes on behalf of three Local Authorities:

  • Dumfries and Galloway Council
  • East Ayrshire Council
  • South Ayrshire Council

If you live in one of the regions listed above and your home is  part of an Area Based Scheme, your Local Authority will contact you in writing to explain the project, introduce the Energy Agency as their managing agent and outline the next steps.

If you have already been contacted by your Local Authority, please complete the Grant Application Form
