Taking the Temperature

Taking the temperature

Age Scotland's nationwide survey of over 50s living in Scotland sought to understand more about their energy usage, experience of paying these bills, relationships with energy suppliers, awareness of energy efficiency support and issues surrounding energy safety, such as the recent requirement to install interlinked fire and smoke alarms.

We are grateful for the partnership and funding from SGN to conduct this survey and to the researchers at Scotinform who undertook the work.

The survey captured the views of over 1,000 older people from all areas of Scotland and offers valuable insight and understanding to the very real challenges they are facing today and what the future winter months ahead have in store.
