Energy poverty – often understood as a situation where a household cannot meet its domestic energy needs – is subject to increasing policy attention within the European Union (EU). Alleviating energy poverty is a key precondition for achieving just transitions towards sustainability. The EU Energy Poverty Observatory (EPOV) report 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.
