Over the past three years, CREDS researchers have been looking at who is vulnerable to both fuel and transport poverty in the UK, to what extent, why and where. They have interviewed households and industry experts, and mapped and surveyed fuel and transport poverty prone regions across the UK in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The latest report, ‘The green uplift: how a net zero economy will reduce fuel and transport poverty’, brings together this research and details the policy options that were explored as part of the project.
This webinar will present the findings of the research, share insights from the interviews and focus groups and provide an opportunity for a discussion about the policy options for addressing transport and fuel poverty which included strengthening public transport, energy efficiency and income supplementation.
Our policy officer, Jack Wilkinson-Dix will contribute to the panel discussion at 2.15pm. Jack will be joined by Jennifer Dicks of Cambridge Econometrics and Stuart Dossett of Green Alliance.
