New NEA Report - It’s cold up North: Fuel Poverty and the Energy Crisis in the North East

A new insights report released by National Energy Action (NEA) in partnership with Citizens Advice Newcastle highlights the current context of the energy crisis and its impact upon households across the North East of England, giving a snapshot of fuel poverty in the region.

The report, ‘It’s Cold Up North: Fuel Poverty and the Energy Crisis in the North East of England’ reveals the extent of national and regional issues associated with the energy crisis, including levels of energy stress in the region, rising levels of energy debt and challenges associated with prepayment meters and mouldy and damp homes. It concludes with recommendations on the actions required to address the impacts of fuel poverty and rising energy costs upon households.

The report is published as part of a broader work programme in the region examining policy and practice responses to fuel poverty. NEA are looking to grow the newly formed North East Fuel Poverty Alliance (NEFPA) among organisations in the region. Please email Helen Stockton This email address is being protected from spambots.
