Addressing Energy Poverty

Addressing energy poverty is an essential part of just and inclusive energy transition process. The energy poverty rates in the Energy Community Contracting Parties are among the highest in Europe. The situation has recently been exacerbated further with rapidly rising energy prices and inflation pushing more people into energy poverty and worsening their living standards.

The purpose of the Energy Community Centre for Alleviating Energy Poverty is:

  • to collect data and information related to the causes and impact of energy poverty in the Energy Community Contracting Parties; 
  • to promote the development of appropriate policies and measures for reducing energy poverty;
  • to provide a platform for discussion among the relevant energy sector stakeholders in the Energy Community.
