The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) is the energy efficiency rating for all social housing, which aims to encourage landlords to improve the energy efficiency of its housing stock. This is an enhancement of the previous Scottish Housing Quality Standard element 35.
As at April 2020 the council 86.13% compliant with the EESSH standard. Good progress has been made with an external wall insulation programme tackling non-traditionally built homes (Cruden) within Clackmannan, Sauchie, Alva, Tillicoultry and Alloa being completed.
Good progress has been made in 2019/20 with our window replacement and central heating upgrade programmes resulting in more EESSH compliant homes.
