Abstract or summary

The two research reports presented here are the result of a modelling project by Change‐works, a Scottish sustainable development organisation. The reports aim to address this in‐formation gap by articulating some of the fabric upgrade options that might be eligible for Green Deal finance, and discuss some of the issues around assessment, eligibility and expected savings.

The measures outlined in the reports are all considered suitable for older buildings, especially pre‐1919 dwellings, and in many cases may also be suitable for listed buildings. The measures have been tested in the Historic Scotland site trials programme, although due to the experimental nature of the work, accurate costs (which will affect the eligibility for the Green Deal) were hard to scale up for standard work.
