Research Fellow Ana Stojilovska with colleagues published an article in Social Policy and Society where they explored literature at the intersection of climate change and energy poverty identifying policy approaches, tensions, and solutions of relevance for social policy. While tensions exist between efforts to mitigate climate change and energy poverty, climate-friendly mitigation of energy poverty requires better integration of social perspectives to disrupt current technical biases, recognising the characteristics and needs of individuals in energy poverty, and holistic governance approaches, especially involving the health and housing sectors. The publication is open source thanks to funding from HUN-REN Centre for Social Sciences.
