The Citizens Advice Service (Citizens Advice - England & Wales and Citizens Advice Scotland) commissioned the Association for the Conservation of Energy, CAG Consultants, Centre for Sustainable Energy and Dr Joanne Wade to investigate the case for the local delivery of home energy efficiency and fuel poverty services across Great Britain.
The project consisted of a wide-ranging programme of research that explored the potential opportunities and barriers to setting up a local delivery model across GB. The research combined literature review, expert stakeholder interviews, a survey of local authority officers, sub-national and regional workshops and a final policy workshop to test emerging ideas.
The full research report outlines the research findings and detailed proposals for the local delivery of energy and fuel poverty services. There is also a separate summary of the report’s main recommendations.
