As the pan-London phase is currently rolling out and due to the nature of delivery I am not in a position to carry out this evaluation at this stage. As I am not collecting data on income levels as part of RE:NEW, in the evaluation we will investigate the potential for proxy indicators to establish figures for residents which were considered to be in fuel poverty.
