New Appointment to the Fuel Poverty Committee

Fuel Poverty

I am delighted to have been appointed to the Committee on Fuel Poverty, which advises Government on the effectiveness of policies aimed at reducing fuel poverty and encourages greater co-ordination across the organisations working to reduce fuel poverty.

 

It replaces the former Fuel Poverty Advisory Group and, as part of this transition, it has moved from being a committee of organisational representatives to one of independent experts. Members were appointed in January 2016 for 3 years following the appointment of our Chair, Tom Wright CBE, last year.

 

With only our first meeting under our belts it is early days;  I am looking forward, however, to tackling what is a big agenda for both our social and environmental responsibilities.
