Fuel poverty strategy for England

By July 23, 2019Consultations

Deadline 16th September

Fuel poverty is defined in the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000 as:

a person [who] is a member of a household living on a lower income in a home which cannot be kept warm at reasonable cost.

In 2014, the government introduced in legislation a fuel poverty target for England to improve as many fuel poor homes as is reasonably practicable to a minimum energy efficiency rating of Band C, by the end of 2030.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy is looking to update the fuel poverty strategy for England. This consultation has 2 aims:

  • to publish an assessment of the implementation of the 2015 fuel poverty strategy so far
  • to seek views on proposals to update the fuel poverty strategy
