The Scottish Fuel Poverty Advisory Panel is an advisory non-departmental public body (NDPB) which will oversee Scottish Government progress in working towards the delivery of its fuel poverty targets and implementing the Fuel Poverty Strategy.
The Panel will:
- champion and foster a collaborative approach to addressing fuel poverty,
- engage with the public, private and third sector and people with lived experience of fuel poverty,
- work closely with the Poverty and Inequality Commission, including on the implementation of the Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan.
The Panel will also act as a statutory consultee on the Scottish Government’s fuel poverty progress periodic reports and on heat networks. The Panel provides an important means of external scrutiny.
The Scottish Fuel Poverty Advisory Panel used to be a non-statutory independent advisory body which ran from 2018 to 2019. Published material from this previous Panel and the Scottish Fuel Poverty Partnership Forum is available.
