Analysis of household energy bills and difficulties faced by the elderly


This study aims to better understand the topic of energy poverty in Belgium. Indeed, following the increase in energy prices over the past few years, more and more households are faced with difficulties to heat their homes and pay their energy bills. This is particularly the case for the elderly population with low incomes. This study therefore aims to study the difficulties faced by households due to their energy bills, especially for elderly people. The possible consequences of ageing of the population and a rise of energy prices are also considered.
