ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of understanding who is likely to be in fuel poverty to energy suppliers recouping debt in Great Britain. One study by Experian indicates that 1.9 million households in the country are considered fuel poor. It adds that the profitability and the sensitive management and service of energy companies are compromised by fuel poor households who are expected to fall behind with payments. It adds that identification of risk profiles will ensure that the fair treatment requirements of the government are met.
