Climate Change Mitigation Policies TargetingHouseholds and Addressing Energy Poverty inEuropean Union


Climate change mitigation measures linked to households’ energy consumption havehuge greenhouse gases (GHG) emission reduction potential and positive impact on energy povertyreduction. However, measures such as renovation of residential buildings or installation of microgeneration technologies based on renewable energy sources have not realized their full energy savingand GHG emission reduction potentials, due to the energy efficiency paradox and other barriers.These climate change mitigation policies targeting the households’ sector can deliver extra benefitssuch as energy poverty reduction and implementation of the energy justice principle; therefore,they require more attention of scholars and policy makers. The aim of this paper is to analyzethe energy poverty and climate change mitigation issues in EU households based on a systematicliterature review, and to provide future research paths and policy recommendations. Based on thesystematic literature review, this paper develops an integrated framework for addressing energypoverty, just carbon free energy transition and climate change mitigation issues in the EU. Additionally,we argue that more targeted climate change policies and measures are necessary in the light of theshortcomings of current measures to reduce energy poverty and realize climate change mitigationpotential linked to energy consumption in households.
