Details

This report presents findings from research commissioned to build on the existing fuel poverty evidence base.

Phase 1 of the research validated and improved the department’s proxy measures to identify the fuel poor.

Phase 2 used qualitative research to validate the proxy measures developed in phase 1 and explore the behaviours, experiences and attitudes of the fuel poor to inform phase 3, a large-scale quantitative survey to examine and compare the energy usage behaviours, attitudes towards energy use and the significance of energy costs of households who were likely to be fuel poor and those who were less likely to be fuel poor.
