Executive Summary

A report provided by the Scottish Fuel Poverty Strategic Working Group.

The report explores why current programmes have failed to eradicate fuel poverty, and proposes a fresh approach aimed at delivering the outcomes of affordable warmth and energy use for everyone in Scotland. This approach is based on four high level recommendations set out in detail in the report.

The full report provides detailed recommendations on how the broad themes can be taken forward in a new, comprehensive strategy to eradicate fuel poverty. It includes both short term measures to give some immediate relief to individuals and families from high energy bills or draughty homes, and longer term strategies that seek to create local opportunities and more affordable sources of energy.
