Friends of the Earth has identified neighbourhoods where fuel poverty will be concentrated in 2023 (fuel poverty hotspots). The number of these by local authority area is identified within this spreadsheet.
Narrowing down our recent identification of 9,000 energy crisis hotspots, we’ve now identified 1,000 of the coldest neighbourhoods in England and Wales. Find out how we did this, who lives there and what the solutions are.
This data includes the number of energy crisis hotspots - lower than average income, higher than average energy use - by local authority area, plus data on the number of homes within these that require loft or cavity wall insulation, plus the average current energy bills for Autumn/Winter 2022 following recent policy announcements.
