A new Call for Evidence seeks input on actions to modify and enhance the range of support mechanisms currently provided by the Scottish Government through the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.

Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) was launched by the Scottish Government in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Futures Trust and sector specialists in March 2015.

The LCITP aims to support Scotland’s transition to a low-carbon economy, providing a range of support, from expert advice to financial support to assist the development and delivery of private, public and community low-carbon projects across the country.

Its main focus is assisting projects to develop investment-grade business cases that will help secure public and private capital finance to demonstrate innovative low-carbon technologies in Scotland.

Evidence is sought on the support and interventions necessary to accelerate future deployment of low and zero carbon infrastructure projects in Scotland.

Input from stakeholders is also sought to help design and develop a successor programme to the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition programme.

In particular, evidence and views are welcomed on the barriers to the delivery of low and zero emissions energy infrastructure projects, the challenges and risks to delivering large scale low emissions energy infrastructure projects, the priority areas identified for the future delivery programme and sustainable support mechanisms to enable increased uptake.

This consultation closes on 30 April 2021.

More information about this consultation and how to take part is available on the Scottish Government website.
