This book explores the issue of energy poverty in post-communist Europe and shows how it is viewed and addressed through public policies.
Energy poverty is severely affecting many parts of the European Union, but up until now only a few comparative analyses have been developed to understand the phenomenon and its diversity throughout the region. Filling this gap, this volume focusses specifically on the Eastern European Region, drawing on contributions that cover a wide range of countries including Germany, Poland, Romania and Hungary. This region has undergone significant transitions over the past three decades, but as the contributions demonstrate, it still faces major challenges to providing clean and affordable energy to its citizens and renovating existing housing stock. The chapters explore the extent of energy poverty in each country and examine the drivers, whilst casting a light on how policymakers tackle the issue through a critical examination of the instruments implemented to help the energy poor.
This book will be of great interest to researchers in the fields of energy policy and comparative politics, to policymakers in post-communist countries and EU institutions, and also to other relevant actors, such as companies and NGOs who focus on issues of energy poverty.
