Abstract: Policy makers and interests groups often make claims about the benefits of distributed renewable energy technologies. For example, it is suggested that renewables may have an impact on fuel poverty (Walker, G., 2008). This is uncertain and the research outlined describes a method whereby the potential impact on fuel poverty of solar photovoltaic technology (PV), as supported by the UK Feed-in Tariffs, can be tested. It is suggested that PV targeted at lower income groups may have a higher impact on fuel poverty but only approximately 6% of a sample of households were lifted out of fuel poverty.’
