Abstract

This book aims to provide a global perspective on energy poverty, with the aid ofnovel theoretical approaches that disturb entrenched scientific preconceptions and policy prescriptions. We are particularly interested in deepening existing conceptualizationsof the systemic drivers of energy poverty, by drawing attention to themanner in which the condition is embedded in deeper forms and practices of socialexclusion and injustice. Starting from the fact that energy poverty is an inherentlyspatial phenomenon – it is both experienced in and caused by the entanglement ofthe socio-technical infrastructures of the home, while varying significantly acrosscities, regions and nations – there is a strong focus on the geographic processes andcontingencies that underpin the emergence of this predicament. We draw togetherthe findings of original research conducted by leading experts from a wide range ofcountries in order to capture the rapidly expanding corpus of scientific and policyexpertise on energy poverty. By furthering knowledge on the driving forces of thecondition, the book also produces policy-relevant insights that can aid decisionmakingon how domestic energy deprivation can be ameliorated.
