The Fuel Poverty Strategy sets out a range of actions that will be taken to tackle the drivers of fuel poverty and meet the Scottish Government’s commitment to eradicate it as far as reasonably possible by 2040.

These include:

  • Driving up energy efficiency standards through regulation, delivering a new Housing Standard and a review of energy efficiency standards in social housing;
  • Ensuring all households in fuel poverty have access to high quality, impactful advice;
  • Providing targeted support for those unable to afford the energy they need, those who need greater warmth, and those facing specific barriers to getting out of fuel poverty.
