Developing a social energy target in Europe: Proposals for bridging the 'Energy Divide' and putting low-income households at the heart of Europe's energy future.


The Green Group in the European Parliament commissioned National Energy Action (NEA) in an impartial capacity to investigate the feasibility of establishing an ‘EU-wide Social Energy Target’. It is hoped that the outputs of this work could ultimately support a bold and new European wide commitment; to ensure that one day every household in the EU could adequately maintain the temperature of their dwelling to safeguard their health and wellbeing.
