More than £2 million is being put forward to help households and businesses boost energy efficiency.
Money has been given to 15 councils to help projects as part of the new Energy Efficient Scotland programme.
Scottish Government funding will also support local authorities to identify opportunities for efficiency improvements and heat decarbonisation.
Energy minister Paul Wheelhouse said: “There will be challenges and opportunities in transforming Scotland’s homes and buildings to be warmer, greener and more energy efficient, and so we are testing various approaches to drive further action on energy efficiency during the programme’s transition phase.
“This includes how best to engage with consumers, communities and Scotland’s businesses on this important issue.”
Councils with projects receiving funding are Clackmannanshire, Edinburgh, East Lothian, Falkirk, Fife, Glasgow, Highland, Inverclyde, Midlothian, North Lanark
