Getting the measure of fuel poverty - Final Report of the Fuel Poverty Review


This report, commissioned by the UK’s Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), presents the final conclusions of the fuel poverty and its measurement review. It follows the interim report published in October 2011 and the main part of this analysis examines “The implications of measurement for the way we understand the effectiveness of the range of policy approaches to reducing fuel poverty.”


The central task for this review was to examine the way in which trends in fuel poverty and identification of those at risk from it have been measured and to suggest whether there might be a better alternative.


The conclusions are crystal clear; underlining that fuel poverty is a major social problem, causing considerable hardship and negative health impacts.
