SHAP RESPONSE TO THE BEIS FUEL POVERTY STRATEGY CONSULTATION

Stakeholders from across the West Midlands and the wider UK have been meeting for over 12 months to discuss the architecture and governance of a new fuel poverty strategy and delivery programme. The proposals for the new programme will build on experience of what works and will fundamentally and radically address systemic failures to tackle fuel poverty. The proposition is, following WMCA Energy Capital discussions with BEIS, Ofgem and others, that the West Midlands proposals would be trialled over the next three years and the findings would be used to help inform the design of fuel poverty policy, strategy and delivery from 2022.
SHAP (the Sustainable Housing Action Partnership; http://www.shap.uk.com is co-ordinating five Task and Finish groups which will report to the West Midlands Fuel Poverty Steering Group during autumn 2019. Click on link below for full article (PDF).
