10. Public sector bodies (including Housing Associations) have to issue invitations to tender for the supply of utilities including heat. SFT have produced information on 'Powers of Scottish public bodies to generate/procure heat and electricity supplies, to supply heat and electricity to third parties, and the constraints on those powers' and 'Guidance on Delivery Structures for Heat Networks' for public sector bodies in Scotland wishing to develop district heating schemes with multiple heat users and/or heat sources and identifies the main delivery structures currently used and uses relevant case studies. Both are available at www.districtheatingscotland.com see section on 'Resources'. It should be noted, under normal circumstances where there is an existing district heating network it would need to bid along with other potential heat providers to provide heat to the public sector based on the tender.

11. 'Permitted development rights' refers to planning permission specified in legislation and which removes the need to apply for planning permission. Such rights usually include restrictions and conditions on the permission.

24. Companies interested in this support should contact calum.robertson@zerowastescotland.org.uk if they wish to participate. As a trial support service availability is limited and the trial aims to a test the approach across a range of industrial sectors, focus on sites with high potential for the identification of large scale heat recovery opportunities and coordinate support activity with partner organisations such as Scottish Enterprise . Support to date has consists of 10-15 days consultancy time with outputs including a Sankey diagram identifying energy inputs, heat flows and waste heat streams and identified opportunities for heat recovery and reuse.

27. Article 14 (5 – 8) of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive includes a requirement that a cost benefit analysis ( CBA) is carried out when a new district heating and cooling network is planned or in an existing district heating or cooling network a new energy production installation is planned or an existing installation is to be substantially refurbished where the total thermal input of the plant in question exceeds 20 MW. The CBA must assess the cost and benefits of utilising the waste heat from nearby industrial installations.
