In parallel, fuel poverty affects millions of people in Europe. In the EU countries, about 10% of the population (almost 50 million people) are unable to keep their home adequately warm. To add to that, more than 8% of the population are in arrears on utility bills.

These kinds of figures make it important to explore the possible actions and policies that favour on the one hand, the development of renewable energy and facilitate on the other, access to energy for all.
