Our reports on the Programme and fuel poverty have shaped the future direction
The Warm Homes Programme is an important part of the Welsh Government’s strategic ambitions to reduce and ultimately eradicate fuel poverty. It is designed to reduce energy bills by installing free energy efficiency measures.
The future of the Programme has taken on added importance at a time of concern about the impact of recent fuel price rises. The programme also makes an important contribution as Wales charts a path to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
