Fuel poverty charity NEA has welcomed a report reprimanding energy companies for their "lack of transparency". The charity said that current measures to address the level and depth of fuel poverty did not constitute an "ambitious strategy."
External affairs manager Peter Smith said:
It is therefore crucial that in the coming months the Government accept there is a strong need to address well documented deficiencies and ensure that there is adequate and proportionate assistance which is accessible to low income vulnerable households to protect them from rising energy costs.
