Join us on 2 October for the ESRC Just Energy webinar!
In February 2020, we visited Réseau Eco-Habitat, a French organisation helping households affected by energy poverty to renovate their houses.

Therefore, understanding which consumers are currently excluded from accessing justice through ADR is key, as is providing an overview of recent EU and national measures and policies which seek to address energy poverty and consumer vulnerability in the energy sector.
