Description

Energy Poverty and Vulnerability provides novel and critical perspectives on the drivers and consequences of energy-related injustices in the home. Drawing together original research conducted by leading experts, the book offers fresh and innovative insights into the ways in which hitherto unexplored factors such as cultural norms, environmental conditions and household needs combine to shape vulnerability to energy poverty.

Reviews

"It is rare to find discussions of energy poverty that take a global perspective and recognise it as produced in relation to history, culture, infrastructure, energy and welfare politics, and much else. This collection has a fantastic set of chapters, examining energy poverty in a diversity of contexts, as well as critiquing existing analytical frameworks." Professor Gordon Walker, Lancaster University, UK
