    Abstract This policy brief explores how developed countries can address the needs of vulnerable groups in their climate mitigation actions, focusing on clean energy policies. To realise the full potential of clean energy, social and economic incentives and support measures must be strengthened and widely implemented. The brief provides the following recommendations to guide policymakers in developed countries to achieve a net zero transition that ensures equal access to clean energy and energy efficiency solutions for all: (i) identify vulnerable energy users through data collection and analysis of socio-economic challenges for net zero emissions; (ii) improve governance mechanisms to harmonise climate change policies with socio-economic policies; (iii) enhance support measures for vulnerable energy users to ensure equal access to clean energy through evidence-based information.
