Low Carbon Heat

Rural communities have higher fuel poverty levels due to low incomes and expensive heating fuels. Some European countries with more low carbon heat take-up have lower fuel poverty levels than the UK.

Our project, funded by the Eaga Charitable Trust, provided a comparative analysis between the UK and other countries to identify drivers and barriers affecting take-up. The findings from the study, completed in November 2017, can be broadly categorised by two key areas, that of policy and of practice, therefore we have produced a suite of resources targeted towards the information needs of specific audiences.
