Home Energy Efficiency Programme

What is it?

The Scottish Government's Home Energy Efficiency Programme for Scotland: Area Based Schemes (HEEPS: ABS) was introduced in April 2013 as a successor to the Universal Home Insulation Scheme (UHIS).

It is an area based approach to delivering insulation measures to owner occupied properties. It is supported by funding from the Scottish Government and is delivered by local authorities.

The Scottish Government's objectives in implementing HEEPS: ABS are to:

  • upgrade Scotland's housing stock
  • tackle fuel poverty
  • reduce carbon emissions
  • lever in Energy Company Obligation funding
  • support the local economy and sustainable local economic development
