Energy poverty as a social and environmental justice issue
1 in 4 Europeans are unable to adequately light, heat or cool their homes, and poor quality housing is linked to 100,000 premature deaths a year. There is growing discontent in the face of unjust and unambitious climate policies that make the poorest pay the bill of the energy transition. As rates soar due to Covid-19, it is clearer than ever before that Energy poverty is a social and environmental justice issue.
