Findings from research to develop a model to estimate overall levels of fuel poverty, severe fuel poverty and fuel poverty amongst vulnerable households.
The combination of (moderately) rising household incomes, reduction in household energy consumption due to energy efficiency improvements, and decreasing gas and oil prices since 2014, have led to estimated fuel poverty levels across all Welsh households decreasing since 2014 to a projected level of 23% in 2016.
The projected levels of severe fuel poverty remains broadly level between 2012 and 2014, followed by a decrease in 2015, resulting in a projected level of severe fuel poverty of 3% in 2016.
