Effective and efficient delivery of fuel poverty and energy efficiency programmes will be greatly assisted by informative and accessible data sources that enable identification and targeting of fuel-poor households. The lack of reliable and accessible data relating to fuel-poor households is a major barrier to developing and implementing optimal programmes to address fuel poverty. NEA has been commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to explore what data would be required to complement a legislative framework to facilitate a neighbourhood retrofit programme post-2012.
