Scottish Fuel Poverty Map
30 December 2021
The worst areas for fuel poverty in Scotland revealed.
As industry and charities call for urgent action to support people with their energy bills this winter, the extent of Scotland’s fuel poverty problem has been geographically captured for the first time.
Figures mapped out by fuel poverty campaigner’s Energy Action Scotland show that 40% of people living in the Western Isles live in fuel poverty compared to just 13% in East Renfrewshire. The Scottish average was 24% of all households.
