About Right to Energy Coalition
Right to Energy unites trade unions, anti-poverty groups, social housing providers, NGOs, environmental campaigners, health organisations and energy cooperatives across Europe. Right to Energy campaigns to tackle energy poverty at an EU, national and grassroot level. Right to Energy aims for an energy system that puts people and planet before profit. The Coalition was formed in 2017 to advocate for energy poverty in the 2030 EU energy legislative package. Since then, coalition members have successfully campaigned to ban disconnections, implement free of charge renovations for energy poor households and include the energy poor as key players in the EU Green Deal.
