Energy poverty and social relations: understanding vulnerability through secondary qualitative analysis

Project Director: Dr Lucie Middlemass (University of Leeds)
Project Duration: 2017-2018

This project drew on a large body of existing (under-utilised) qualitative data to investigate the impact of households’ social relations on vulnerability to energy poverty. The project team’s collective expertise in energy poverty, vulnerability and secondary data analysis allowed us to investigate the emerging link between social relations (friend and family relationships, and interactions with service providers) and households’ capacity to withstand energy poverty. Outputs included a preliminary conceptual framework to explain how vulnerability to energy poverty is affected by social relations, and an analytical approach to secondary qualitative data on this topic.
