Home energy efficiency and winter deaths 

News Content

A new project funded by the NIHR Public Health Research (NIHR PHR) Programme is aiming to discover whether there is a link between home energy efficiency interventions and mortality.

Every winter in the UK, around 25,000 deaths have cold as a contributing factor. Low income and elderly populations appear particularly vulnerable. There is evidence that inadequate insulation and poor heating of the home may be partly responsible for these deaths and for hospital admissions due to exposure to the cold.
