Performing an energy comparison in order to find cheap electricity and gas could be a vital activity for many households, after a new study revealed fuel poverty is set to be a growing issue.
According to the independent Hills Report, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, the high cost of keeping a home warm is a "serious" problem for the UK, with around 27,000 people dying each year due to the cold weather.
The document, authored by Professor John Hills of the London School of Economics, stated "it is essential that we improve the energy efficiency of the whole housing stock" in order to tackle the issue.
Prof Hills also called for changes to be made to the way fuel poverty is measured to give a more accurate picture of the true situation.
Responding to the interim report, Consumer Focus' director of energy Audrey Gallacher said it is vital the government acts on the findings and formulates a "coherent plan" to address the points raised.
