UK Fuel Poverty Monitor 2014
Through the ‘UK Fuel Poverty Monitor’ we make an annual assessment of fuel poverty levels and compare the differing approaches to tackle this issue across the United Kingdom. This year’s monitor provides a nation specific update on progress towards fuel poverty aspirations or targets. Whilst income support measures and energy discounts play an important role in tackling two of the factors which cause fuel poverty (low income levels and the continued high price of domestic energy), the main factors under consideration within this report are the different approaches the Westminster and devolved governments are currently taking on energy efficiency programmes.
