Today, over 50 million Europeans are forced to live their lives in energy poverty. This means that they are not able to pay for the electricity and gas they need, which can have serious effects on their health and wellbeing.

Clean and affordable energy is a basic right for every European citizen – no one should be left in the cold!

Therefore, we have set out the key steps to end energy poverty – once and for all.
