DIGITAL

Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband ( DSSB) Programme

Investment in fibre broadband to deliver (alongside commercial coverage) to 85 per cent of home and businesses by end 2015 and 95 per cent by end 2017.

£410 million

2013 to 2017-18

The programme met its target of providing access to 85 per cent of homes and businesses across Scotland, alongside commercial coverage, by June 2015.

Availability of fibre broadband connectivity is critical to Scotland's future. Such connectivity will support future innovation in the digital economy and ensure Scotland's business base can remain competitive in the global digital environment. It will help the transition to a low carbon economy. It will drive rural economic growth and competitiveness, creating more and better jobs and opening up new and respects and protects our environment.

CBS is currently supporting 90 pipeline community organisations through project development and has approved grant funding for 62 projects with a value of over £2.4 million. A total of 13 community broadband projects are now building or delivering broadband services covering over 3,500 premises and 6,700 beneficiaries.

Availability of fibre broadband connectivity is critical to Scotland's future. Such connectivity will support future innovation in the digital economy and ensure Scotland's business base can remain competitive in the global digital environment. It will help the transition to a low carbon economy. It will drive rural economic growth and competitiveness, creating more and better jobs and opening up new and respects and protects our environment.

£7.5 million (£6.5 million revenue plus £1 million capital) is core funding from Scottish Government.

£9 million (capital) is Scottish Rural Development Programme.

Further Extension of Broadband Coverage

To be confirmed - £42 million has been identified so far; however, the scale of the challenge will require additional investment.

2016 to 2020

Funding will be used to further extend superfast coverage. We are currently considering delivery options and, in early 2016, we will set out how we plan to utilise available funding to deliver improved connectivity to premises not covered by DSSB and CBS.

Availability of fibre broadband connectivity is critical to Scotland's future. Such connectivity will support future innovation in the digital economy and ensure Scotland's business base can remain competitive in the global digital environment. It will help the transition to a low carbon economy. It will drive rural economic growth and competitiveness, creating more and better jobs and opening up new and respects and protects our environment for different ways of living and working that encourage strong and growing rural towns and villages and respects and protects our environment.

Capital Funded.

Funded by Scottish Government and UK Government.

World Class Digital Infrastructure Programme

To be confirmed - further investment (private and public sector) will be required, both in core ( e.g. fibre and internet exchanges) and access networks ( e.g. ultrafast and 5G).

Over the next 12 months, we will set out a detailed digital infrastructure road map to deliver world class connectivity through to 2020 and beyond.

The world class programme is currently considering:

1) alternative financing, commercial and delivery structures that could allow the public sector to stimulate the market in a more sustainable and cost effective way, and accelerate the deployment of infrastructure; and

2) how current and future policy can be used to lever further digital capability, and the way in which it can support the wider industry to invest and grow.

World class digital connectivity across the whole of Scotland has a vital role in enabling a vibrant world leading digital economy.

As well as having the potential to generate significant economic benefits, increased digital capabilities will also have a positive impact on the provision of health, education and social inclusion.

Mixture of public, private EU and other sources to developed.

Renewable Energy, including district heating

Implementation of the Scottish Renewables Routemap.

District Heating Loan Fund has been increased in 2016-17 by around £2 million.

Up to £14 million was made available to fund Wave Energy Scotland until end March 2016 and we are committed to supporting WES in future settlement.

Spending review period

A range of projects will be supported, including:

  • The District Heating Loan Fund
  • The Heat Network Partnership;
  • Support for Infrastructure and technology development in Marine Energy, including Wave Energy Scotland;
  • Scaling up of Communities and Renewable Energy Scheme ( CARES) fund (see Local and community energy section below);

Scottish Government target to deliver 100 per cent of our electricity needs from renewables and 11 per cent of heat demand by 2020, towards the long term decarbonisation of the energy system.

The District Heating Loan Fund will be part of driving these policies forward - helping to maximise the replacement of traditional heating with low carbon and renewable heat.

Aim to maximise the benefits for communities from access to locally produced and affordable renewable and low carbon heat.

Development of carbon capture and storage infrastructure (cluster investment plan)

Scottish Enterprise, in partnership with the Scottish Government, key industry players and leading research bodies, is developing a carbon capture and storage ( CCS) Cluster Investment Plan to drive forward the development of CCS opportunities in Scotland.

£2.5 million ad hoc aid grant from Scottish Government to Summit Power in order to undertake feasibility study of for the proposed Caledonia Clean Energy CCS Project, a notional 570 MW IGCC Power Station with carbon capture and sequestration facility.

£2.5 million over 2015-16 and 2016-17

Most investment in infrastructure is expected to be met by the private sector. The potential public sector contribution is yet to be quantified.

2016 SG/ UKG joint grant funded feasibility work for Summit Power's Coal CCS Plant in Grangemouth is completed and a CfD is negotiated for this project. Preparatory work on framework for industrial CCS and wider CCS network is completed.

The economic opportunities for the development of a CCS-based industry are considerable and it is estimated a whole new industry could emerge in Scotland, which could support up to 10,000 new jobs in the next 10 years.

CCS will be a key global tool in the fight against climate change, given that some 40 per cent of global emissions are associated with coal.

Mixture of public and private capital and revenue funding.

Storage, repairs and maintenance at national cultural and heritage organisations

Rationalisation of the storage requirements, possible disposal of assets (unsuitable stores requiring significant repair), shared services through co-location of storage, and maintenance of remainder of existing estate.

To be confirmed following review of estates.

This project will be phased possibly over a 10 -15 year period, subject to funding availability.

Construction of new storage and maintenance of existing estate will need to be largely Scottish Government funded as maintenance and storage will be unlikely to attract lottery or private sector funding.

More efficient and high-quality public services: a new collections facility can help national cultural and heritage organisations to generate even greater social benefit within Scotland, and increased international profile for Scotland, by helping to increase access to the national collections . Reducing the amount of floor space required through more modern and more appropriate storage. Allowing disposal of outdated and high-maintenance storage facilities.

Opportunities to share facilities wherever possible and share costs such as security and transport.
