    Energy poverty is on the rise in Europe, even though it is unevenly distributed across social groups and territories. In general, policymaking is hampered by the misaligned incentives between landlords and tenants on who should bear the costs of energy inefficient buildings. At EU level, the absence of reliable indicators across member states makes the identification of energy-poor consumers difficult. In this Policy Brief, Claire Dhéret and Marco Giuli emphasise that the European Union’s added value in the fight against energy poverty should not be underestimated, because of the relatively new nature of the concept and the lack of policy experience among many member states in confronting this issue.
