STEP-IN project launch
STEP-IN officially started on June 1, 2018.
All STEP-IN partners came together for the project’s kick-off meeting in Manchester, UK on June 14-15, 2018. Fruitful discussions among the partners and with the EASME Project Officer and interaction with local organisations working with vulnerable consumers provided motivation to collaborate on the important topic of energy poverty.
