Low Carbon Heat Industry Research Study - Online Survey

20th November 2020

Working with market research consultancy, Optimat Limited, we're carrying out a study of companies active in the low carbon heat industry in Scotland.

We're contacting you to provide an overview of this study and ask for your help in completing an Online Survey

The purpose of the study is to provide us with a better understanding of the potential barriers to future growth of low carbon heat companies and what support would help increase the value of low carbon heat projects secured by Scottish based companies. The study will inform the development of support services for the low carbon heat sector.

The low carbon heat sector and its supply chain comprises a broad range of activities, including:

Biomass heating

Combined Cooling, Heat and Power

Combined Heat & Power/ large boilers

Cooling systems

Direct electric heat

District heating

Energy from waste

Fuel cell micro CHP


Heat monitoring & control

Heat pumps (air, ground and water source)

Heat pumps (hybrid)

Heat storage

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning

Industrial process heat

Low carbon building materials and components

Low carbon fuel and energy

Solar thermal

As part of the study, we're engaging with businesses involved in one or more of the above listed activities and would be very grateful if you would consider participating in a short online survey that should take between 10-15 minutes to complete.

Participation in the survey is entirely voluntary and all responses will be held in the strictest confidence in line with the Market Research Society Code of Conduct. Responses will be aggregated within a report that will be published and freely available. The report will not contain any information identifying the responses of any individual participants or their businesses.
