Creator:

Department of Energy and Climate Change

Subject Keywords: Household, Energy bills
Set: Fuel Poverty
Type: Report
Region: United Kingdom
Description:

This document sets out a framework for future action in tackling fuel poverty in England. It provides a bridge between the independent Hills Review of fuel poverty published last year and a future Government Strategy for Fuel Poverty, to be put in place following Royal Assent of the Energy Bill currently before Parliament.

Fuel poverty is a real and serious problem faced by millions of households in the UK today. It is a problem that leaves many facing difficult choices about where to spend their limited income. It leaves many fearing for their health or the health of their children as they live in a home seemingly impossible to heat.

This document sets out a framework for future action in tackling fuel poverty in England. It provides a bridge between the in dependent Hills Review of fuel poverty published last year and a future Government Strategy for Fuel Poverty, to be put in place following Royal Assent of the Energy Bill currently before Parliament. The approach outlined in this document is necessarily indicative as it is dependent on decisions that are yet to be taken. However, once a new legislative framework is in place, our intention is to publish a new strategy reflecting those decisions.
