Predicting fuel poverty at the local level. Final report on the development of the Fuel Poverty Indicator


This report describes work undertaken by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) and Bristol University to develop a methodology for predicting fuel poverty at small area level. The project was funded by SWEB, the main electricity supplier in South West England, to fulfil two aims. First, SWEB felt that a small area fuel poverty indicator would help the company target its Energy Efficiency Commitment programme and other anti-fuel poverty initiatives. Second, SWEB believed the project would help to develop best practice within the energy industry.
