CFI-ESRI research project on Fuel Poverty

The Energy and Taxation, Welfare and Pensions teams have agreed a research programme with the Community Foundation for Ireland to investigate aspects of fuel poverty in Ireland. This will involve an investigation of the various drivers and nature of fuel poverty in Ireland. Particular attention will be paid to evaluating quantitative and qualitative measures of fuel poverty and how they compare. This work will help inform the identification of households at risk of fuel poverty.
