Fuel poverty and what the Community Energy Sector is doing about it

Its official, winter is here, and with mixed messages from the meterologists about just how cold or warm it will be, one thing we can be sure of is that those in fuel poverty will be feeling the cold the most. As a country, we have a lot to be thankful for our temperate seasons, but in one of the most developed and richest countries in the world, the cold still impacts the health and wellbeing of 11% of the population.

By using case studies, this report highlights how Community Energy groups are especially well placed to provide life changing assistance to vulnerable households living in fuel poverty.
