Fuel Poverty and the road to recovery
Scottish Fuel Poverty Conference 2021
17-19 March 2020
Fuel Poverty and the Road to Recovery
This past year has seen quite extraordinary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our people. Our members and partners have worked hard to provide support to ensure that people could access support, advice and improvements to their homes. It hasn’t been plain sailing and there is a worrying increase in the number of fuel poor households in Scotland. Scottish Parliamentary elections are just around the corner, a new fuel poverty strategy is being developed and, as Glasgow waits to host COP26 during 2021, there is a huge focus on the future of our planet. This is a time to focus on what we have learned during COVID-19 and how we can work together to help make a real change to the lives of people in Scotland.
We will be gathering online this year to deliver a series of themed sessions with experts across a range of fields, leading the debate to challenge our perceptions and help us uncover how we are going to make a genuine difference.
Unlike our Annual Conference, this will be open to all and free of charge. But we need your support to deliver the best possible experience. We anticipate that attendance will exceed 400 unique delegates who will interact virtually, across six, two-hour sessions.
Join Energy Action Scotland in helping to change the policy landscape.
Fuel Poverty and the road to recovery is a series of 6 online events. Please be aware that you must book to attend each session as they are individual events. To book a place at our sessions you can follow the links to:
