GCU and Applegreen working to combat ‘extremely challenging’ fuel poverty issues

applegreenGCU and AppleGreen Homes are working on a project which they hope will combat fuel poverty – low cost environmentally effective housing.

Eradicating fuel poverty by 2016 will be “extremely challenging” following energy price increases, the Scottish government has said.

The admission came from Infrastructure Secretary Alex Neil after three of the six biggest energy suppliers confirmed rises in electricity and gas prices. Scottish and Southern Energy, ScottishPower and British Gas have all announced big rises in recent weeks.
