Energy poverty refers to a situation where households struggle to maintain a necessitated level of domestic energy services to guarantee a decent standard of living, like adequate warmth and cooling (18-21ºC in the winter and 25ºC in the summer according to the World Health Organization).
Currently, 11% of Spanish households are unable to maintain adequate warmth in their homes during the cold season (5.1 million of people) according to the Spanish Association of Environmental Sciences (ACA), supporting organisation of the EU Energy Poverty Observatory. A recent study commissioned by the Granada Provincial Council (Diputación de Granada) reveals that in the province of Granada the rate is 12’5%-13’9%.
