In the POWERPOOR project, partners are actively assessing causes of energy poverty and suggest short-term and collective energy action solutions to mitigate this problem. A highly diverse network of Energy Supporters and Mentors has been trained and is being engaged to further support energy-poor households to implement solutions. The project also sets up Local Energy Poverty Mitigation Offices in engaged municipalities. POWERPOOR strives to trigger high-impact change, not only on the local and regional level, but also on the national and European level. Such a multi-level governance approach will result in long-lasting impact and coordination between local needs and national (e.g. National Energy and Climate Plans) and supra-national enabling frameworks.
