POWER UP at the Right to Energy Forum -“Power to the people: Delivering energy justice through community energy”

Across Europe, citizens are working together to create an energy system that puts people and planet first. Not just as passive consumers, but as change-makers and active participants. Community energy initiatives can be an important step towards a just and inclusive energy transition. This interactive session showcased first-hand experiences tackling energy poverty and highlighting obstacles and opportunities for kick-starting your own energy solidarity initiatives. 

It included three group sessions focusing on:

  • Energy poverty and health
  • Energy cooperative solutions for energy poverty alleviation
  • Raising funds for energy solidarity
