RES Foundation is a member of the Right to Energy coalition that unites trade unions, anti-poverty groups, social housing providers, NGOs, environmental campaigners, health organisations and energy cooperatives across Europe. We campaign to tackle energy poverty at an EU, national and grassroots level.
1 in 4 households in the EU, over 50 million individuals, cannot afford to adequately heat, cool or light their homes (HEAL, 2019). The Right to Energy coalition recognises energy poverty is a political choice that calls for a political response.
With the exacerbating impacts of the COVID-19 crisis and the climate crisis, we must take action to eliminate energy poverty across Europe. The Right to Energy coalition brings together fundamental skills and knowledge needed to ensure a fair energy transition leaves no one behind from community action to EU policy.
