London, United Kingdom, July 10, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The NIA is to hold a summit on July 23rd to address the problem of fuel poverty in private residences with solid-wall insulation.
Representatives from a number of organisations have been invited to attend the summit, including members of the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the Energy Saving Trust, the National Landlords Association, Citizens Advice and the Centre for Sustainable Energy.
Kevin Burke, representative of appliance, home emergency and boiler cover specialists 247 Home Rescue, said:
"Fuel poverty in the UK has reached crisis levels.
"The problem has been growing for years, but in the face of rising energy bills and shrinking disposable income, the coming winter is set to see fuel poverty reach epidemic levels. Many families will be left facing the choice of whether to heat or eat when the winter strikes.
"We hope that the NIA's summit achieves real results and that the UK's solid wall residences can begin to see long-term energy efficiency improvements before the cold weather hits.
"247 Home Rescue thanks the NIA for its tireless work, and eagerly anticipates the results of the summit."
