Energy poverty

Several measures are now implemented in the European legislation and reflected at national levels to fight energy poverty and protect vulnerable consumers, such as the obligation imposed on Member States to achieve a minimum part of their energy savings target with energy-poor households, vulnerable customers and, where applicable, people living in social housing. The policy trajectories need to ensure the EU will follow the “green” pathway of the Green Deal, allowing for job creation with clean energy and moving towards energy justice and inclusion. IEECP is glad to be working in projects supporting this just energy transition and providing exciting tools for all to join the action.
