Towards an inclusive energy transition in the European Union: Confronting energy poverty amidst a global crisis


This report offers a comprehensive perspective on current and forthcoming measures to address energy poverty across the EU. It consists of two sections, the first of which examines policies and measures to address energy poverty across the EU, while the second presents the latest statistics on energy poverty. Both sections offer state-of-the art knowledge and evidence on ongoing efforts to address the problem, as well as its distribution and character across the EU.

The report concludes by synthesising the results of the analyses and emphases avenues for future action to address the problem. These include need for better data collection, as well as the continued compilation and evaluation of best practices in the context of the Clean Energy Package and the European Green Deal.
