Support for projects tackling energy poverty


Energy poverty represents a serious challenge today. As a result, supporting programmes and alternative financial initiatives have emerged as a viable means to mitigate its effects on energy-poor citizens. The EU-funded POWERPOOR project will develop projects that support energy-poor citizens and the use of alternative financing options such as cooperatives or crowdfunding. It will encourage the exchange of experience and knowledge, the realisation of small-scale energy efficiency interventions and the installation of renewable energy sources. Pilot support projects will be planned and developed in eight EU countries under the direction of certified energy supporters/mentors who will support over 22 000 energy-poor households and encourage citizen engagement. The results will improve policymakers’ knowledge and be used for global and EU initiatives.
