TASC Submission to the ongoing public consultation on Energy Poverty.
TASC has made a submission to the ongoing public consultation on Energy Poverty.
Lower-income households have been disproportionately affected by the cost of living crisis as they spend a more significant proportion of their budget on energy costs. TASC recommends increased public investment in energy efficiency and retrofitting measures designed to support those who are currently experiencing, and are most vulnerable to energy poverty. By prioritising win-win solutions to energy poverty and the urgent need for emissions reductions in the residential sector, connected societal issues such as substandard living conditions, energy poverty-related health issues, fossil fuel lock-in, and volatile oil and gas energy bills can be tackled in tandem.
