The 1990s saw a growing focus on energy conservation and fuel poverty in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and the introduction of several policies and schemes designed to further both agendas, such as the Irish Energy Centre in the ROI and the Domestic Energy Efficiency Scheme in the UK. While geographically part of the landmass of Ireland, Northern Ireland is territorially within the UK, and its citizens and those in the south are subject to different policies and regulations.
