Using Solar PV to Tackle Fuel Poverty

Author: Changeworks
Date: 2014
Location: UK

The use of photovoltaic (PV) systems in domestic properties boomed after the introduction of the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) in 2010. The deployment of solar technologies should see a decline in energy users’ fuel costs (and thus fuel poverty), while property owners (including landlords) should benefit from the income generated by the FIT. The wider context of rising fuel poverty acts as a spur to implement the energy efficiency measures with the greatest impact on consumption.

Renewable Heritage – A Guide to Microgeneration in Traditional and Historic Homes

The installation of microgeneration systems in residential properties has the potential to make an important contribution to reducing fossil fuel consumption and ensuring a sustainable fuel supply. However, this option may be challenging where the property is subject to strict rules governing modifications to its fabric. Historic buildings are often protected by legal directives or planning conventions such as conservation areas.
