17. The basket of Kyoto Protocol greenhouse gases comprises carbon dioxide ( CO 2), methane ( CH 4) and nitrous oxide ( N 2O), for which the baseline is 1990; and hydrofluorocarbons ( HFCs), perfluorocarbons ( PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride ( SF 6), for which the baseline is 1995.

26. The impact of the UK's exit from the European Union on the role of emissions trading is not factored into the draft Plan, since the UK Government has not yet commenced negotiations with the EU, and has not yet taken a position on the UK's future relationship with the EU Emissions Trading System. The EU ETS remains a fundamental part of UK and Scottish climate change legislation. Powers exist under the Climate Change Act 2008, to create emissions trading schemes in the UK.

51. This is our initial indicator based on readily available and published data.

We will work with the industry and other interested parties to assess and if necessary develop a more appropriate indicator with which to measure the emissions efficiency of the HGV sector.

52. Commitments in kilometres electrified do not extend beyond the current control period. The Italicised figures are simply indicative at this point and future plans will be announced as part of the new control period.

53. Includes both space heating and water heating

54. This includes the electrification of heat. Currently, around 50% of non-domestic buildings' heat is supplied using electricity which, over time, will see an increase in the low carbon feedstock.

55. Fabric improvements relate to the installation of insulation and controls for lighting and heating.

67. Figures for Phase V of the ETS (post-2030), covering the Scottish carbon budget to 2032 are not available, since the EU's contribution to the Paris Agreement is currently only set out to 2030. We can expect further tightening of the ETS cap beyond 2030 to meet the EU's 2050 target of 80% emissions reduction.

68.
