Delivering affordable warmth in rural Scotland: action plan

Report produced by the independent Scottish Rural Fuel Poverty Task Force setting out actions to deliver affordable warmth in rural Scotland.


In recognition of the serious and persistent nature of the rural fuel poverty problem, the Scottish Government set up an independent and broadly-based* Rural Fuel Poverty Task Force in August 2015. Its remit was: to develop a set of SMART actions which a) would make it significantly easier for people living in rural and remote Scotland to keep their homes warm and b) which can be fed into the further development of fuel poverty and energy efficiency programmes and also to c) consider issues across all sectors and tenures and d) publish an action paper by September 2016
