Working for Warm, Dry Homes
Energy Action Scotland (EAS) campaigns for an end to fuel poverty in Scotland and is the only national charity with this sole remit.
EAS aims to develop and promote effective solutions to the problem of cold, damp and expensive to heat homes.
The website has been designed and developed to allow diverse users the ability to easily source policy, research, press and project materials on the above.

UK Fuel Poverty Monitor 2018: Call for Evidence
The UK Fuel Poverty Monitor is our annual investigative report, co-authored with NEA, on fuel poverty levels in the UK and within each of the four nations. The Monitor also investigates the key policies and practices that are in place to tackle cold homes and makes country-specific and national recommendations.
The focus of the 2018 UK Fuel Poverty Monitor will be looking at the UK wide cold snap between February and March 2018 and reflecting on where key lessons can be learned in advance of this coming winter.
Please help us to build our understanding of how the severe cold weather was experienced on the ground and to identify key lessons going forward by completing this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/UKFPM2018
This survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on the length of your responses. The survey will close at 2pm on Monday 18th June 2018.
Energy Efficient Scotland Route Map
The First Minister launched the Scottish Government's Route Map for Scotland's Energy Efficiency Programme, renamed as Energy Efficient Scotland, at the All Energy conference in Glasgow in May 2018. The Route Map is now available on the Scottish Government's website here
It sets out how the Scottish Government will deliver the National Infrastructure Priority on Energy Efficiency.
Energy Efficient Scotland will help to remove poor energy efficiency as a driver of fuel poverty and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by making domestic and non-domestic buildings more energy efficient and helping to decarbonise the heat supply.
The Route Map outlines a number of proposals and highlights areas for future development. As such, the Scottish Government has published two consultations seeking views on their proposals. These can be found on the Scottish Government website.
EAS issued a press release on the route map: Scotland's Fuel Poverty Charity Welcomes New Routemap to an Energy Efficient Scotland
