Tackling Fuel Poverty – A Beacon Council Toolkit for Local Authorities

Author: National Energy Action (NEA) and five English local authorities (Blyth Valley Borough Council
Date: 2003
Location: England

In 2001, the UK Fuel Poverty Strategy introduced a national policy that pledged to eliminate fuel poverty within a decade. Local authorities have been tasked with translating the policy into local strategies and programmes of delivery on the ground, with duties to report on their progress. Many have produced detailed Affordable Warmth plans and programmes of activities designed to improve energy efficiency and tackle fuel poverty in their areas. The potential for sharing learning and best practice is therefore significant.
