National Right to Fuel Campaign

Tags: NGOs

The NRFC is an independent and volunteer-led campaign which brings together a range of voices from the corporate, charitable and public sectors to raise the profile of fuel poverty. The NRFC came into existence in 1975 with the single aim of ensuring that every household is able to afford adequate heat, light and power. Today it is still campaigning to protect the right of all people in the UK to live in a warm, dry and well lit home.

Network for the energy transition (Réseau pour la transition énergétique - CLER)

CLER is a French association for the protection of the environment since 1984. Its objective is to promote renewable energy, energy efficiency and more generally, the energy transition. It coordinates local services for energy efficiency (SLIME) and aims to support local measures fighting against energy poverty by focusing on tailored advice to low-income households via house visits.

Solutions to Tackle Energy Poverty (STEP)

Solutions to Tackle Energy Poverty (STEP) is a project to develop a simple, innovative and replicable model of measures to address energy poverty. The project covers some of the countries with the highest rates of energy poverty in Europe. These are Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and the United Kingdom. STEP’s overall objective is to alleviate energy poverty by encouraging behavioural change and low-cost energy efficiency solutions among consumers in or at risk of energy poverty through trusted, tailored advice.

There are three specific objectives:

  • To get consumer groups and frontline organisations, who advise people on a range of issues such as financial or health-related ones, to partner and deliver advice to energy poor consumers.
  • To help energy poor consumers across the 9 countries save energy and improve their living standard. We will advise consumers on more efficient energy consumption and how this can help them save money and improve their health and well-being. We will carry out information campaigns, provide tips on how to save energy, demonstrate cost savings and help put in place low-cost energy efficiency measures.
  • To disseminate best practices and policy choices that can alleviate energy poverty and promote their replication in other EU countries.
