First Annual Report from Scottish Fuel Poverty Advisory Panel

The Scottish Fuel Poverty Advisory Panel have published their first annual report.

The report details the work that has been done since the panel was set up in January 2022. It reflects on the significant increase in fuel poverty rates, from 24.6% in 2019 to 31% in 2022, driven by the energy crisis and the wider cost of living crisis, and the impact these have had on those suffering and entering fuel poverty. This is the context which has dictated and shaped the panel's work since they were appointed.
