Affordable Warmth in ‘Hard to Heat’ Homes: a progress report


Affordable Warmth in Hard to Heat Homes: finding a way forward was published in February 2002 and gave an overview of the extent and problems of fuel poverty in hard to heat homes. “Hard to heat” was defined as those without cavity walls, off the gas network or both. The project recommended a route map of work, covering policy, technology, knowledge sharing, best practice and marketing, in order to make progress. In the two years that have elapsed, both fuel poverty and hard to heat (or treat) homes have received much attention, but how much progress has been made? This project will review the evidence and interview the original and new stakeholder groups to provide up to date information.
