Low carbon energy transition as a driver and solution to energy poverty and injustice, Rachel Guyet*

Policy Paper:

Energy poverty is a major social phenomenon in Europe, reflecting increasing inequalities. Energy transition, on the other hand, is the ongoing energy transformation process that could result in worsening existing energy poverty patterns if it fails to be framed in a fairer and more inclusive perspective. Alternative energy transition models are emerging at local levels to help address the justice principles underpinning a successful energy transition trajectory.

* Rachel Guyet is Director of the Master in global energy transition and governance at CIFE. She also teaches at the European campus of Sciences Po in Dijon. Her research fields are energy poverty and energy transition at local level. She is member of the ENGAGER network and of the industrial chair HOPE on energy poverty. She is also member of the Energy group at CERI-Sciences Po.
