Here you can find information on Nottingham's Fuel Poverty Strategy
Nottingham City Council is committed to creating a fair city where everyone has equal opportunities. One of the top priorities is to tackle fuel poverty by providing affordable warmth and healthy homes for all citizens.
Around 15% of households in Nottingham are affected by fuel poverty. To address this issue, the council has created a strategy framework and objectives in partnership with different organizations.
The strategy was launched in 2018 and will run until 2025. The council's work aims to eliminate E, F, and G EPC rated homes occupied by fuel-poor households and enforce new legislation to protect renters through Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards, in line with government goals.
