Affordable Energy Strategy Consultation
- This consultation has now ended - thank you to everyone who took part
What happens next?
- In July 2020, the Cabinet adopted the Affordable Energy Strategy which was amended following the consultation.
What we consulted on
A new Affordable Energy strategy was drafted setting out the vision and priorities for tackling fuel poverty in Haringey. Before the strategy is finalised, we want to make sure that local residents, communities and stakeholders have their say on whether these priorities will make a positive impact, identify any gaps in the strategy and to hear what you think about it.
The existing Affordable Warmth Strategy (2009-2019) has now expired. It is estimated that over 15,000 households in Haringey experience fuel poverty. By adopting a new strategy Haringey will have a clear way forward to tackle the issue and improve the health and wellbeing of its residents.
The draft strategy- the Affordable Energy Strategy (2020-25), builds upon previous and existing fuel poverty interventions. However it has a wider scope than previous strategies. This is in recognition that being unable to adequately power a home for lighting, heating, communication can also have an adverse impact on the occupants health, academic attainment and general wellbeing. The strategy also acknowledges that the increasing impacts of climate change will increase overheating risks and that making homes more energy efficient can introduce further overheating problems.
The Draft Affordable Energy Strategy is available to read below. There is a consultation summary document and a full document, which provides more detail of the actions, objectives, and policy background.
