Energy UK comments on the Fuel Poverty Strategy

In response to the Fuel Poverty Strategy, Daniel Alchin, Energy UK’s deputy director for retail said:

 “Today’s Fuel Poverty Strategy is a step in the right direction and underlines the mutual benefits that will come from tackling fuel poverty through energy efficiency measures to make homes healthier and safer to live in – while also contributing to reaching our climate change targets.
“We welcome the Government’s updated definition of fuel poor and its focus on retaining statutory targets. However more must be done to ensure the costs of meeting these targets do not fall disproportionately on the fuel poor, given that schemes like the Energy Companies Obligation are funded by levies on energy bills.”
