Fuel Poverty Strategy published

Post by AngelaE » Thu Feb 11, 2021 2:20 pm

[Published 11 February 2021] 'Sustainable Warmth – Protecting Vulnerable Households in England', the updated Fuel Poverty Strategy for England, has today been published alongside the Government response to consultation on updating the 2015 strategy.

The strategy can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicat ... in-england, and for the Government response please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultat ... or-england

Sustainable Warmth, the updated Fuel Poverty Strategy for England, sets out how the Government will tackle fuel poverty, while at the same time decarbonising buildings, so that those in fuel poverty are not left behind on the move to net zero, and, where possible, can be some of the earliest to benefit.

The strategy announces the expansion of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) which will run from 2022 to 2026, with an increase in value from £640 million to £1 billion per year. ​​​​​​​The updated strategy additionally announces details of new funding of £150 million for the Home Upgrade Grant.

It builds on the 2015 fuel poverty strategy, and is supported by feedback from the 2019 consultation on a fuel poverty strategy for England.
