Yet, in view of recent unprecedented energy prices and geopolitical risk, the concept of energy poverty has gained a great deal of attention. The Nordic countries have offered varying levels of support to households most affected by the high electricity prices. This report critically examines energy poverty in the Nordics, offering insights into challenges related to energy access and recommending strategies for improvement. In the Nordics it is important to address and reduce energy poverty to make the green transition more inclusive and socially sustainable.
