Glasgow Gives £5m To Energy Efficiency Programmes

Glasgow City Council will give £5m to help local homes improve their energy efficiency.

The Glasgow City Council has pledged to give £5m to to three different energy efficiency programmes in the area.

It was recently revealed in Scotland that a team of economists back energy efficient programmes as they believed that this would create around 9,000 jobs and boost the economy.

£4.3m for home energy efficiency programmes will be allocated two projects; wall insulation and a hybrid insulation for both internal and external walls. The programmes will be carried out in several areas, including Haghill, Dennistoun, Riddrie, Priesthill, Milton and Greenfield.

In addition, the Scottish Energy Efficiency Programme, a scheme established by the Scottish Government, will see £620,400 go to projects like wall insulation on tenements constructed before 1919; superior insulation and building fabric, a new heating systems in several community buildings and more.

To complete the spending, £340,000 will be given to five Glasgow housing associations to meet the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing.

The EU recently hit their 2020 energy efficiency target, with the UK playing a pivotal role. But it appears Glasgow isn’t keen on stopping their climate change battle just jet, giving £5m to several home efficiency programmes.

“These programmes deliver real and lasting social and economic benefits to many people across Glasgow, saving money on fuel bills, bringing warmer homes, and cutting emissions. The city also enjoys an additional economic boost from these projects with local firms and people being employed to work on these contracts,” said Councillor Frank McAveety, Glasgow City Council.
