As of today, the EU Energy Poverty Advisory Hub (EPAH) is giving cities and towns across Europe the chance to apply for technical assistance. The call for applications promises tailor-made support from experts in the development of local measures to fight energy poverty. Applications can be submitted until 1 March.

Numerous informational events will be held from 3 to 15 February to answer questions about the application process. As coordinator of the initiative, Climate Alliance is organising two events of its own:

  • On 3 February (13h CET), the team will address signatories of the Covenant of Mayors in particular | Register here
  • On 9 February (10 a.m. CET), the team will address German municipalities in particular | Register here

EPAH is the EU's leading initiative with the vision to eradicate energy poverty and accelerate the just energy transition in European municipalities. The team offers support as well as online services, such as the EPAH Atlas with inspiring examples of local action or online training on energy poverty. The first online course with information about the initiative and the topic of energy poverty is now available online.
