ABSTRACT: We use thenearest  neighbour propensity  score matchingto  link dwellings holding Energy Performance Certificates(EPCs)in the Italian provinceof Trevisowith information on the socio-economic characteristics of households most likely to inhabit them.We constructadatabase of 17,405dwellings for  which information  on  standardized  energy  needs  is matched to data on (potential)  inhabitantsand  their  imputed  income,  basedrespectively  on  census recordsand survey data. Our analysis shows that EPC registers can be exploited to investigate how income and housing conditions affectfuel  poverty  and  to  identify municipal areas  with  higher  fuel  poverty  risk. Our findingshighlight that  when  designing  interventions  to reduce fuel  poverty,  policymakers  should target households based not onlyon their income but also on type of heating fuel.
