Designing pro-poor and ‘energy just’ policy mechanisms

Home > FAIR > Designing pro-poor and ‘energy just’ policy mechanisms

We will explore policy implications based on results from Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities and Visualising and mapping vulnerabilities parts of the project.

Designing pro-poor and ‘energy just’ policy mechanisms

The challenges of energy demand reduction have far-reaching implications for technology, business models, social practices and policy. This aspect of our work explores the policy implications and builds on the results from Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why and Visualising and mapping vulnerabilities. Complemented by focus groups and expert interviews, we examine how to put into practice inclusive energy transitions. This includes designing policy measures for particularly vulnerable groups in relation to emergent new technologies such as digital home energy management or electric vehicles.

What we are asking

  • How can we design ‘energy just’ policies that address vulnerabilities in the energy and transport sectors?

Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why?

This aspect of our work is exploring the eventualities that render households vulnerable in energy and transport systems.

Visualising and mapping vulnerabilities

This part of the project will quantify, model and map vulnerabilities to poverty in energy and transport systems.
