This chapter is a collective work that presents the different meanings of energy poverty in Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, and Brazil. In each country, difficulties in access to energy, payment of the costs, vulnerable users, quality, and the main legal challenges facing the search for true energy justice are analysed. In South America, the definition of energy poverty takes into account complex factors recognizing not only weather and geographical differences in the region but also the variety of cultural, economic, and social perceptions over energy needs and consumption. Then, the definition applicable to Latin America takes into account more complex factors recognizing not only weather and geographical differences in the region but also the variety of cultural and social perceptions over energy needs and consumption.

Keywords:   energy poverty, energy access, electricity affordability, vulnerable users, quality of electricity service
