The EU Fuel Poverty Network (EUFPN) is a legacy project that was established in 2011 by Dr Harriet Thomson to connect stakeholders across Europe working to address the issue of fuel poverty (an alternative term for energy poverty). The EUFPN was a leading online resource for energy poverty stakeholders, with a wide range of expert content. Recognising the significance of this content, the decision was taken to migrate outputs from the EUFPN to the new portal for the EU Energy Poverty Observatory in 2017, including perspective articles, case studies, and a catalogue of articles.
