Fuel poverty in the cost of living crisis

Lucie Middlemiss, Aimee Ambrose, Neil Simcock, Mari Martiskainen & Graeme Sheriff
Access to energy is being severely restricted by the cost of living crisis, with almost a quarter of households experiencing fuel poverty, despite existing interventions. Here we draw on a large body of evidence on fuel poverty to summarise likely effects on households this winter. We find there is urgent need for further bill support, energy efficiency and targeted advice for vulnerable households.
