The Renewable Energy Foundation project aims to research, identify and examine effects of extensive costs associated with UK and EU energy policy, with a view to formulating some concrete policy proposals to tackle the growing incidence of fuel poverty. The grant will enable REF and NEA to jointly deliver a research project examining the effects of current and future policy on energy prices to the consumer, and thus on levels of fuel poverty. In particular, the research aims to provide evidence of the impact that these policies are having on fuel poor households, evidence that can then be used to inform measures to avoid undesirable consequences.
