Catalogue of health-related fuel poverty schemes


There is growing awareness and evidence of the negative impact cold homes can have on householders’ health and wellbeing. With this in mind, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) commissioned National Energy Action (NEA) to carry out an online survey to catalogue local schemes that are targeting individuals with health problems for energy efficiency measures and other fuel poverty interventions. The aim of the survey was to collate information on health-related fuel poverty schemes to better understand levels of activity in this area and highlight challenges to implementation, as well as successful approaches.
