Heat Decarbonisation Plan Guidance

Click here to view a helpful guide for all eligible public sector organisations wishing to upgrade and improve their current heat decarbonisation plans or are setting about creating their first plan through Phase 2 of the Public Sector Low Carbon Skills Fund.

Heat Debarbonisation Plan Support Tool 

The Heat Decarbonisation Plan support tool is an excel file that can be downloaded from here.

This support tool provides a place to capture information that will form the basis of your heat decarbonisation plan. This will provide a database of buildings information to be included in the HDP. Building data is for pre and post decarbonisation design and focuses on the heating system, fabric insulation and electric system together with low carbon heating and energy efficiency measures.

The purpose of the tool is to create a database of the buildings on an applicant’s estate.

The tool should be provided together with the HDP by March 2022.
