Tackling energy poverty in the rental sector - new recommendations available
Over the past two years, Climate Alliance, together with its ENPOR project partners, has examined the current policy landscape in Europe and conducted a carefully targeted stakeholder consultation process to develop policy recommendations for short-, medium- and long-term action to address energy poverty in the private rented sector. This process has shown that financial barriers are the most important to overcome when it comes to implementing successful measures. It was also found that while energy poverty in the private rented sector is relatively invisible, especially among low-income and vulnerable tenants and landlords, EU-level policies can play an important role in promoting targeted energy efficiency measures.
A first look on policy recommendations and possible solutions is now available.
