Fuel Poverty Forum

Role of the group

The Fuel Poverty Forum met for the last time in December 2017 and is no longer active. A new governance framework for monitoring progress towards tackling fuel poverty in Scotland is now in place through the independently chaired Scottish Fuel Poverty Advisory Panel and Partnership Forum

The forum provided advice and support to help meet our commitment tackle fuel poverty and provide oversight and scrutiny on our fuel poverty and energy efficiency programmes.

This included:

  • monitoring the implementation of the energy efficiency programmes, including targeting and delivery
  • advising Ministers on further action
  • liaison with the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group for England to develop an appropriate link that will ensure Scottish interests are fed into reserved policy areas
