+Impact - Local Community Energy TariffNational project
Energise Sussex Coast (ESC), jointly with local non-profit partners, set up a community energy tariff.

The tariff was primarily aimed at local people wanting access to green energy and keen to make a contribution to local community energy initiatives.
Pop-up Energy DesksNational project
Energise Sussex Coast (ESC) targeted residents living in deprived areas, who were more likely to be living in energy poverty. The Pop-up Energy desks increased the accessibility of the energy advice service, offered by ESC, to these residents. By going into these neighbourhoods, ESC was able to engage and build relationships with disadvantaged or marginalised groups.
Face-to-Face Energy VisitsNational project
Face-to-Face energy visits helped tackle energy poverty by visiting households living in poor conditions, providing them with advice or directing them to other help devices offering solutions tailored to their needs. The local energy and climate agency in Brest, Ener’gence, offered energy visits including technical and social support. The target group of the energy visits were inhabitants encountering difficulties in paying their energy bills or who struggled to keep their home adequately warm during winter. The activities of the energy-visits not only involved the visit itself, which lasted between 23 hours, but also included follow up support and assessment.
