Energy poverty, as a social and political issue, is at different stages of development across Europe. Originating in the UK, it is reaching the political agenda in other European countries, driven by a range of concurrent issues including economic recession and inequality, low carbon energy transitions, and changing consumption demands. The article presents an analysis of three national approaches to energy poverty in Europe; England, Ireland and France.
In comparing these cases, the article shows how each defines and measures energy poverty differently and how this affects the selection and functioning of different policy solutions.
