Moving in the right direction in addressing fuel poverty in England


Baby steps in the right direction to address fuel poverty…

Energy in Demand - Sustainable Energy - Rod Janssen

The 2013 annual fuel poverty report for England was released last week.

The report analyses data from English Housing Survey to measure the impact of fuel poverty in England.

A combination of rising incomes and energy efficiency improvements in low income households has seen a decrease in the fuel poverty gap from £909 million in 2012 to £877 million in 2012, with an overall reduction of £32 million. There has also been an improvement in fuel poverty levels in England from 2.36 million in 2012 to 2.35 million in 2013.

These improvements are encouraging because they show that we are moving in the right direction and that by helping low income households improve their energy efficiency we can make a real difference in helping to keep their bills down.
