Time to reconsider UK energy and fuel poverty policies?

Fuel poverty occurs where households are required to spend in excess of 10 per cent of their household income on heating and powering their home to a satisfactory standard.

This paper aims to inform the energy and social justice debate by exploring how UK energy and fuel poverty policy can contribute towards a socially just transition to a low carbon society.  Before beginning to consider how this could be achieved it is necessary to examine why this question is important.
