Abstract

This book aims to provide a global perspective on energy poverty, with the aid of novel theoretical approaches that disturb entrenched scientific preconceptions and policy prescriptions. We are particularly interested in deepening existing conceptualizations
of the systemic drivers of energy poverty, by drawing attention to the
manner in which the condition is embedded in deeper forms and practices of social
exclusion and injustice. Starting from the fact that energy poverty is an inherently
spatial phenomenon – it is both experienced in and caused by the entanglement of
the socio-technical infrastructures of the home, while varying significantly across
cities, regions and nations – there is a strong focus on the geographic processes and
contingencies that underpin the emergence of this predicament. We draw together
the findings of original research conducted by leading experts from a wide range of
countries in order to capture the rapidly expanding corpus of scientific and policy
expertise on energy poverty. By furthering knowledge on the driving forces of the
condition, the book also produces policy-relevant insights that can aid decisionmaking
on how domestic energy deprivation can be ameliorated.
