National fuel poverty statistics released to the public Mar 01, 2023

fuel poverty statistics

The annual fuel poverty statistics in England have just been released by BEIS and the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero.

Using data from 2022 it highlights how currently 3.26 million households in England are in Fuel poverty.

Last year the number of fuel poor households increased by a substantial amount, but through local and nationwide support the impact of the energy crisis has been significantly decreased.

A further large set of topics is covered such as the average fuel poverty gap rising to 32 per cent, 7.39 million people spending more than 10 per cent of their income on domestic energy and the factors that have led to the UK’s current energy emergency.

However it’s not all completely bleak, thanks to the work done by YES and companies across England doing similar work, together alongside support from the government, we have managed to prevent the number of fuel poor households from rising by a further 495,000.

These numbers are represented by the graph blow.

- - Dark blue is the number of fuel poor households

- - The lighter blue represents the measures affecting the decrease

- - The green represents the source of the increase

- - The dashed bars represent the possible increase without the preventative measures put in place.
