Policy Pathways to Justice in Energy Efficiency

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM, 16 July 2018
University of York , CAN Mezzanine, Old Street,N1 6AH, United Kingdom

Emerging research findings suggest that there is a gap between the lived experiences of fuel poverty and the policies that attempt to address it. This pervades all stages of the policy process, from the definition of fuel poverty, to the households defined as eligible for support, how these households are helped, through to the way in which this support is delivered.

This workshop presents emerging research findings about the experiences and needs of groups vulnerable to fuel poverty and provides an opportunity feedback on policy recommendations.

Speakers and facilitators:
  • Mark Bevan (University of York)
  • Carolyn Snell (University of York)
  • Joanne Wade (Association for the Conservation of Energy)
  • Kelly Greer (Association for the Conservation of Energy)

The event will look at how disabled people and low income families engage with energy efficiency measures. The event will also consider the relationship between UK policy and the needs of vulnerable households and will outline policy and practice recommendations.
