Description:The strategy primarily aims to do two things: Firstly, develop a programme of actions that will improve energy affordability and reduce energy poverty. Secondly, set out a framework for measuring energy affordability and energy poverty. The Government’s Strategy for Affordable Energy in Ireland was published last November. The strategy was developed by the inter-Departmental Group on Affordable Energy and includes 48 actions that will be implemented over the life of the Strategy. The Inter-Departmental Group on Affordable Energy has established subgroups to work on particular dimensions of the Strategy.  These include the immediate priority of revised eligibility criteria for the Warmer Homes scheme and a pilot programme to assess the feasibility of an area-based approach to delivery of the Scheme.
