10.30am-12.30pm Monday 3 March, Grosvenor House, 5 Glengall Street, Belfast
10.30am-12.30pm Tuesday 4 March, Townhall, 2 Townhall Street, Enniskillen

Launching the consultation the Minister for Social Development said “It is estimated that 33,000 households in Northern Ireland have been identified as being in severe or extreme fuel poverty. These households spend 25% or more of their income on household energy costs...Research shows that these households do not take advantage of the help available to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.”

The closing date for consultation response is 9 May 2014.
