The POWERPOOR project, which developed local support programmes for energy poor citizens, trained “energy supporters and mentors” and assessed required regulatory frameworks in eight Member States. This document now briefly presents how different elements of the recent EU 2030 climate and energy legislation can help alleviate energy poverty. Examining different elements of the Fit for 55 package and other relevant energy legislation, the document offers recommendations for their implementation and transposition into national laws from the perspective of alleviating energy poverty on the local level. This document represents an update to the POWERPOOR EU recommendations published in December 2022 as part of deliverable 5.9 of the project.
