AgiltyEco sets out how to end fuel poverty by 2030 in manifesto

AgiltyEco has called on government to develop and implement new public policy and innovative strategies to hit the 2030 target of ending fuel poverty in a new manifesto.

Launched on 17 September at the National Energy Action (NEA) conference in Sheffield, Delivering 2030: From Obligation to Opportunity set out three key proposals for government, calling for recognition of the need for more funding to deliver 2030 targets and greater efficiency through data sharing; leveraging the unique strengths of local authorities by building long-term stable partnerships; and for customers to be provided with all the help they need, including Energy Company Obligation measures and vulnerable customer support.

AgiltyEco CEO, Gearoid Lane, said: “If we deal with energy efficiency and vulnerability together we achieve much better outcomes and if we work together to get the right infrastructure in place, we can support fuel poor households, in their own homes, recognising their particular issues and bringing all the relevant partners together.”
