Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why?

Drawing on householder experiences of current and looking at future decarbonisation policies, this stage of our work is exploring the eventualities that render households vulnerable in energy and transport systems.

Through interviews with households in both rural and urban locations across the UK we will collect detailed, primary data. The recruitment of households will take into account factors such as rurality, demographics, income, tenure and property type, aiming for a diverse range of participants, including those who are often excluded from research.

What we are asking

  • Who and which locations are vulnerable to energy and transport service poverty, to what extent, and why?
