Actions to Mitigate Energy Poverty in the Private Rented Sector

Energy poverty – or vulnerability – is a critical factor for a fair energy transition. It remains at high levels in Europe due to increasing energy costs and slow progress on energy efficiency improvements. Alleviating its impact in the private rented sector (PRS) is a challenge because of the difficulty:

  • to identify and quantify energy-poor households in the sector,
  • to deliver energy efficiency measures to these households due to structural problems like information deficits, split incentives, and more.

ENPOR aims to overcome both challenges – making energy poverty in the PRS visible (and as far as possible quantifiable) and testing energy efficiency support schemes to address it, identifying energy poor tenants (and respective homeowners) as well as understanding and addressing their needs.
