About 20% of households in the UK, and 15% of households in the Republic of Ireland, live in fuel poverty, a state whereby they cannot keep their homes warm at an affordable cost. The need to find an effective solution to the problem of fuel poverty has never been more relevant. Fuel poverty is particularly severe in Northern Ireland, where it effects 42% of households.

The 2014 Fuel Poverty Symposium was jointly organized by Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Ulster. This Symposium brought together postgraduate and early career researchers from across Europe and across a range of disciplines, to present their research to their peers. The event also featured presentations from experienced practitioners, policy-makers and academics currently working in the field of fuel poverty.
