Energy poverty: problems and approaches in the EU and Ukraine

The study looks into the definition of ‘Energy poverty’ in a broader spectrum of energy market reforms in Ukraine. Following the EU’s example reforms of energy markets are not only about creating a free and highly competitive environment, but also the ability of the state to fulfill its own social protection function to the most vulnerable consumers, who for various reasons are not able to secure their basic energy needs. The publication is available in Ukrainian language.
