Fuel poverty is an important question to balance social equity in UK. Traditional methods mostly use interviews or census data to understand the fuel poverty. In this paper, we incorporate the individual household level of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with the Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) dataset to understand the fuel poverty in Bristol. The initial findings showed that poor residents mostly live in the low energy efficiency rating houses, and some of low energy efficiency rating historical buildings were occupied by rich residents. A further examination will include the Zoopla private rental data to better understand the questions.
