dc.description.abstractEnergy poverty is increasingly taking more and more space on international political agendas. However, it seems that research efforts have focused on the theoretical definition or quantitative measurement of this phenomenon. The aim of this study is to present the qualitative reality of energy poverty in one of the western countries most affected by it: Spain. Framed in the Mediterranean welfare state, this research aims to contribute to the link between energy poverty and the resources available to overcome it. The material on which this study is based was collected through 16 interviews with Spanish vulnerable households during the months of March and April 2022. The findings of this research suggest that trust in both public administrations and energy companies is deficient, and is shaped by feelings of powerlessness and injustice. In addition, the stigmatization of poverty and the low social capital caused by isolation reduce the resources available to cope with or even escape from fuel poverty.
