Scottish Government Fuel Poverty Strategy Consultation
Housing Minister Kevin Stewart announced the consultation at the annual Energy Action Scotland conference in Crieff.
The consultation will run until 1 February 2018 and will seek opinions on, among other things, ambitious targets for fuel poverty reduction - with a revised definition recommended by an independent, expert review - and the timescales for meeting them.
Responses to the consultation will inform the new strategy and the development of a Warm Homes Bill, due to be introduced in 2018, which will enshrine the proposed new fuel poverty target in legislation.
