By analysing energy solidarity mechanisms that have been successfully deployed across Europe, CEES will establish their validity to tackle energy poverty more widely.
Solidarity is a key principle of the just, clean energy transition embedded within the Europe Green Deal, which specifically recognises an important role for community energy systems.
CEES will deliver a toolkit of proven approaches by which community projects lift people out of energy poverty.
A partnership of existing energy communities, consumer advocacy groups and academics, CEES will probe ways to identify energy-poor households, assess their needs and measure the impacts of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ measures.
Ultimately, CEES will deliver strategies for leveraging action for optimal results.
