10% of homes in the UK are classified as fuel poor. Those in fuel poverty often have to face the stark choice between spending what they need to heat their home adequately and falling into debt; or rationing their energy use and living in cold damp homes that are dangerous to their health. Others spend money on fuel and reduce their purchasing of other necessities, such as food. Statistics show that 20% of parents living in fuel poverty regularly go without food so that their children can eat.
This FREE seminar, in conjunction with the EPSRC network for Decarbonising Heating and Cooling, explores the issues around fuel poverty and the initiatives that local authorities and communities are taking to ensure that all are able to benefit from the move towards decarbonisation of heating.
