"It is clear that to reach those in need, the local level, the municipalities, need to be at the forefront when it comes to driving forward the just transition. As the EU's leading initiative on local action to address energy poverty, the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub will be the go to place for local authorities and civil society as they take forward wide-ranging solutions" highlighted Kadri Simson, the European Commissioner for Energy in her opening remarks at the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub (EPAH) Launch Event

On 22 November, about 260 participants connected online to hear the high-level opening remarks from EU representatives and mayors from across on how EU policies and EPAH are stepping up energy poverty alleviation efforts, particularly as just transition commitments are bolstered by the Fit for 55 Package and as the current high price environment requires particular attention to the needs of the energy poor and vulnerable consumers.

On 23 November, more than 270 participants joined the interactive sessions where they learnt more about the local level approach of EPAH, exchanged about data collection and assessment of energy poverty, discussed the challenges of vulnerable consumers and were introduced to inspirational local cases.
