Fuel poverty is now one of the most prominent public policy issues affecting the UK. Policy makers are preparing to respond to the challenge with a new fuel poverty strategy in England to take effect from 2015, and changes to policies and programmes affecting all parts of the UK.
‘Turning the Tide’ will run from the 15th to 17th September and will explore the many issues that impact on fuel poverty alleviation with the wide range of players involved in the design and delivery of policy and practical programmes.
The conference will enable around 300 key decision makers, practitioners and stakeholders to debate whether there will be a sea change in action on fuel poverty, focusing on:
· The wider policy context – UK and Internationally
· Delivering simpler, clearer, fairer energy markets for vulnerable consumers
· Implementing the fuel poverty strategy
· Delivering the community energy strategy
· Capitalising the links between health, housing and care
· Closing the poverty gap and improving welfare support
