In the UK, energy access, use and affordability is uneven. Low-income households pay £60 more per year on energy bills than those with higher income. The 10% of poorest areas in Britain pay an annual average of £1,123. The 15% of wealthiest areas pay £1,063. The South West region has the second highest average fuel poverty gap. What does this mean for energy inequality in Exeter and Devon? We will explore this when we host our next free webinar from 6:30-7:30pm on Tuesday June 15 on Zoom. To attend this webinar, please register here.

Panellists will talk about what energy inequality looks like in Exeter and Devon. They will describe efforts to create a fairer energy system. For example, they will discuss how renewable energy can be more accessible. Also, they will highlight how energy inequality intersects with other aspects of poverty and inequality locally. Then the panellists will look at how the pandemic has affected energy access and affordability. Finally, experts will discuss how people can make a fairer energy system both in Exeter and in rural Devon. Watch if you need basic information, or if you have more advanced questions.
