About this event
The winter of 2022/23 saw an unprecedented rise in energy bills. The government responded with a number of necessary but temporary fixes, including the Energy Bill Support Scheme and the Energy Price Guarantee. Despite these efforts, fuel poverty rates in the UK have soared. Since October 2021, 2.1 million additional households spend over 10% of income to heat their homes to a satisfactory level, bring the total number of fuel poor households to 6.6 million (NEA, 2023).
How can we make better long term decisions in order to permanently reduce energy bills, especially for vulnerable consumers? This webinar will cover a range of possible solutions and perspectives, including explaining the speakers work on energy market reform, social tariffs and energy efficiency measures.
