Energy poverty is broadly understood as the inability of households to afford basic energy services to guarantee a decent standard of living. Under Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), EU countries must set up an energy efficiency obligation scheme that requires energy companies to achieve yearly energy savings of 1.5% of annual sales to final consumers. As such, energy companies need to design and implement measures that help final consumers improve the energy efficiency of their dwellings.
