> more than 10% of your disposable income on energy

That definition (for UK.gov at least) seems to have changed, presumably because the 10% is too easy for the peasants to understand.

It now seems to be the lower left quadrant of a graph, left of "60% AHC equivalised income + energy costs" and below "Median required energy costs" (specifics will change yearly) and now requires a load of worked examples to explain, instead of that crazy old fashioned method of "energy costs divided by income" which at least didn't try and sound scientific - the new one has more mumbo-jumbo, but no discernible improvement on the original simple basic indicator.
