#EnergySavingGenie helps UK households to make energy-saving changes in their home by identifying savings and grants and creating connections with trusted energy-saving businesses.
The UK Government has a commitment to tackling fuel poverty through its Energy Company Obligation Scheme.
As energy prices continue to rise and as we approach winter during a pandemic we are asking organisations to join us in raising awareness of the issue and the grants available.
DEATHS DUE TO LIVING IN A COLD HOME IN 2017/18
10,853 people in the UK perished during the winter of 2017/18 as a result of living in a cold home.
HOUSEHOLDS IN FUEL POVERTY
2.4 million households in fuel poverty according to the Annual Fuel Poverty Statistics Report 2020 (2018 data)
Homes currently account for around 20% of emissions but there are 21 million homes currently below EPC rating C, meaning they are not efficient.
