Fuel poverty plans in Wales

Fuel poverty plans in Wales
New plans to tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions have been announced in Wales.

Environment minister Jane Davidson has revealed a scheme to provide support for those living in fuel poverty, which will run alongside the Welsh Assembly's ongoing commitment to improve energy efficiency across the board.

Designed to help low-income households save energy, the new plan will see changes made to the Home Energy Efficiency Scheme.

Ms Davidson explained that greater support will be given to residents receiving means-tested benefits.

"This scheme was set up at a time when incomes were stable and rising while energy prices were falling," she explained. "Now we have the reverse."

Other proposals include cutting public investment in high-carbon home heating systems and providing guidance on energy efficiency for small businesses.

"As a government we have made a commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in devolved areas by three percent a year from 2011. Saving energy will help us achieve this. Importantly it also means saving money," Ms Davidson explained.
