The Welsh Government says almost a third of households in Wales are in fuel poverty.

"In Wales we have been successful in delivering multiple benefits through our energy efficiency programmes, such as Arbed, including jobs, wider community benefits, training and advice for residents.

Our additional investment for the next financial year is £35m. I want the energy companies to see how effective our approach in Wales is and discuss how working together we can maximise the amount.. they invest in these schemes in Wales."
