The evaluation of the Energy Saving Scotland home loans pathfinder scheme was published in December 2010. It is based on interviews and data analysis and therefore provides useful information a number of aspects of the scheme including:

The customer’s decision making process;

The mix of customers and what measures they are likely to install;

The cost effectiveness of loans;

The difference a loan makes; and

Recommendations for refinements to the scheme.

It fulfils the Scottish Government’s aim to determine the receptiveness of domestic consumers to government-backed interest-free loans and gives strong evidence which will be used to inform future development of policy for domestic energy efficiency and micro-renewables.
