Database and report on local actions to fight energy poverty now available

The newly launched online EPAH ATLAS and the report "Tackling energy poverty through local actions ‒ Inspiring cases from across Europe" now provide access to a selection of inspirational cases on energy poverty mitigation actions.

Awareness about energy poverty is growing across Europe. Different European municipalities have already started to address energy poverty by adopting a local approach that fits the needs of their communities. In this light, The Energy Poverty Advisory Hub, where Climate Alliance is the lead partner, has collected more than 200 inspirational cases during a research period that took place in 2021 aiming to inspire practitioners to tackle energy poverty at the local level.

The report displays a series of 24 cases that include national, local and international projects as well as measures. The examples are chosen to cover as many situations as possible both in regard to topic and geography and aim to inspire readers to further consult additional examples on the EPAH ATLAS. The EPAH ATLAS is an online interactive database that allows visitors to discover local and international projects as well as measures addressing energy poverty across the world.. A list of quick and advanced filters allows visitors to browse through the cases in an easy and effective way. Interested municipalities can still share their projects and measures to be added to the EPAH ATLAS at
