About

European Energy Poverty Conference 2018 Logo


Energy Action had advocated for many years on behalf of people living in energy poverty and has worked closely with Community Groups, Government Departments, Local Authorities, researchers and energy companies in searching for solutions that are helping to take people out of energy poverty. This is Energy Action’s 7th annual energy poverty conference and the title of this year’s conference is “European Energy Poverty Conference – A United Approach”.

Exciting new European initiative

It is estimated that 50 million+ Europeans live in energy poverty which is associated with more than 30,000 excess winter deaths in Europe per year. Despite energy poverty being an enduring problem with widespread and severe impact, up to now there has been no common European strategy for tackling it.

Change is on the way.

What is new? The new European energy market rules now oblige all Member States to measure and monitor energy poverty and report to the Commission every two years. In addition, the Commission will facilitate best practice sharing on how to fight energy poverty, through the recently established European Energy Poverty Observatory (EPOV).

We are delighted that Dr Harriet Thomson and Professor Stefan Bouzarovski have agreed to be our keynote speakers at the Conference. They will outline the role and ambitions for EPOV and their relationship with the European Commission and Member States in tackling this problem.

European Energy Poverty Conference – A United Approach

This important event, with delegates from over 20 countries, will build areas of consensus and seek ways of further embedding energy poverty within the broader rubric of EU legislation and remedial action. Our Energy Poverty Conference hopes to build bonds that will lead to a united approach to eliminating energy poverty across Europe.
