Policy Paper: Energy Poverty in the Danube Region

Cold home, leaking roof and “eat or heat” dilemma. These are just a few examples of a phenomenon called energy poverty. It is a complex and multidimensional problem, lying at the intersection of three factors: household income, energy costs and the energy efficiency of the housing stock. As the Danube region is a relatively large area that includes countries with different historical influences, cultures, wealth or living standards, the energy poverty rate varies significantly between these countries.

Based on the study on Energy Poverty in the Danube Region done by the University Center for Energy Efficiency in Buildings CTU Prague, policy paper was produced to present recommendations for replicating good practices in tackling energy poverty in the Danube region. It introduces the topic and a typology of measures, presents sources of replicable examples and provides recommendations for spread of the successful solutions throughout the Danube region.
