Energy poverty is at the heart of a just energy transition. As we move towards our cities becoming more sustainable, we must ask the questions: who has access to environmental services and who does not? Why is this the case and what can be done about it?

Municipalities hold a unique position in responding to these questions. As democratically elected and publicly accountable organisations, municipalities have responsibility for sustainability, poverty and health issues. These issues come together within, and can be addressed through, work on energy poverty.

This guide explores examples of municipal-led energy poverty work from across Europe and offers inspiration and ideas for replication to anyone with a role in a municipality.
