The Fuel Poverty Research Network (FPRN) was established in 2016 by researchers who were all concerned with different aspects of the interaction between people, homes and energy.

FPRN's work is underpinned by four core principles:

  • Collaborating: creating opportunities for collaborative working within and between sectors in order to promote a stronger collective voice and increase the potential for impact
  • Uniting policy, practice and academia in pursuit of the eradication of fuel poverty
  • Disseminating and communicating fuel poverty research and intelligence to peers and end users
  • Impacting: maximising opportunities for informing and shaping policy and practice.
