Fuel Poverty Strategy Consultation

Closes 1 Feb 2018

Opened 9 Nov 2017


This consultation seeks views on proposals to tackle and diminish fuel poverty in Scotland.

The consultation document seeks views on an approach that brings together actions from across government, and across society, to create a comprehensive strategy to deliver reductions in fuel poverty. The consultation also seeks views on how progress should be monitored and how our aim to tackle fuel poverty effectively is translated into an appropriate statutory framework.

The Fuel Poverty Strategy will feed into the development of a new Warm Homes Bill which we plan to introduce in 2018.

The consultation looks at our existing approach and legislative framework for tackling fuel poverty and sets out detailed proposals for a new Fuel Poverty Strategy and the targets which will be enshrined in legislation.

To deliver the aims of the Fuel Poverty Strategy and the Warm Homes Bill which we plan to introduce in 2018 we are seeking views and any additional evidence in response to the questions that feature throughout the document.
