Finnish Energy Poverty Studies compiled by ASSIST project

Finnish Energy Poverty Studies compiled by ASSIST project

EU-funded ASSIST project has compiled national information about Energy Poverty research in various EU member states. This publication focuses on the research conducted on Energy Poverty in Finland.

Finland has not defined energy poverty specifically, but has conducted research about the topic from 2013 onwards. Ministry of Environment has conducted two researches about Energy Poverty in Finnish in 2013 and 2015 about the topic. ASSIST project has researched the phenomena in Finland in English in 2017-2018 and a thesis work on Finnish energy poverty by Mirva Gullman has been published in Finnish in 2019. The English version of the Finnish National Energy and Climate Plan draft of 2018 also refers to measures aimed at alleviating energy poverty in Finland.
