Draft of Finland’s Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan


Finland’s NECP includes a section on energy poverty that gives a good overview of research results on the situation of energy poverty in Finland. The Finnish government argues that energy poverty is appropriately addressed by Finland’s social support system and a specific strategy for addressing energy poverty is not necessary. The NECP gives examples of measures that can also be considered to address energy poverty (e. g. basic income support).
