Despite growing pan-European interest in and awareness of the wide-ranging health and well-being impacts of living in fuel poverty – which is characterised by an inability to achieve adequate provision of energy services in the home – the knowledge base is largely British-centric and dominated by single country studies. In response, this paper investigates the relationship between fuel poverty, health and well-being across 32 European countries, using 2012 data from the European Quality of Life Survey. We find a higher incidence of poor health (both physical and emotional) amongst the fuel poor populations of most countries, and call for additional research to explore this relationship.
