Logo EnPoverThe project aims at alleviating energy poverty of vulnerable households by engaging municipal actors in the process and equip them with a set of universal and ready-to-use tools boosting implementation of low-cost energy efficiency measures in households most prone to energy poverty. Also, a network of municipal professionals, who will exchange relevant ideas and good practices, will be created and a series of inspiring study visits organised. And last, but not least, the project envisages designing and implementation of model awareness raising campaigns that may inspire other cities to follow.

  • Duration: October 2019 – March 2021
  • Countries of implementation: Germany, Hungary and Poland
  • Funding: European Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety

The EnPover project will contribute its share to tackling energy poverty in Europe through the following activities:

  • establishing a network of municipal professionals interested in advancing the topic in their municipalities;
  • mapping and consulting relevant stakeholders, i.e. public authorities and organisations working with vulnerable households to seek their expertise and advice;
  • collecting best practice examples of successful initiatives supporting energy poor households to reduce their energy consumption and improve comfort of living;
  • organising workshops with experts from municipalities, tenants, private homeowners, consumer protection, social welfare and energy consultation organisations;
  • organising study visits to see in reality examples of best practices on tackling energy poverty;
  • developing a toolkit of customized and ready-to-use support schemes boosting implementation of low-cost energy efficiency measures in private households;
  • launching model awareness raising campaigns addressed at private households, especially those most vulnerable to energy poverty;
