This is a new energy efficiency rating for all Social Housing to be achieved by May 2020. It aims to encourage landlords to improve the energy efficiency of its housing stock. This is an enhancement of the previous Scottish Housing Quality Standard element 35.
As at May 2019 Clackmannanshire Council is 72.7%compliant with the EESSH standard. Good progress has been made during the year with a further External Wall Insulation programme tackling non-traditionally built homes (Cruden) within Clackmannan , Sauchie , Alva , Tillicoultry and Alloa which were completed in October 2018.
Good progress has been made in 2017/18 through our window replacement and central heating upgrade programmes which have led to a higher number of compliant homes with the new standard.
