Energy & fuel poverty trends

This resource comprises a set of online, interactive maps which cover themes associated with understanding the geographical patterns in fuel poverty and some of the measures which can be put in place to counteract fuel poverty, including:


  1. Gas and electricity consumption
  2. Fuel poverty
  3. Property cavity wall and loft insulation
  4. Domestic solar photovoltaic installations


The benefit of the tool is that it consolidates materials produced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change into a single location and allows patterns and trends at local authority level to be readily assessed, including through the use of animations. The data can be used to provide evidence for the need for local interventions and to find out how the situation in your local area compares to the national picture.
