Energie solidaire (les Amis d'Enercoop)

National project

Energie solidaire is a fundraising solution to support actions mitigating energy poverty based on micro-donations deducted from consumers' bills and donations of energy by producers in self-consumption, sale of surpluses paid back to the project aiming at supporting actions of consumption audit, support to renovation and to find adequate grants.

Because Énergie Solidaire originates from the energy sector, it addresses energy producers, suppliers, and consumers, enabling them to:

  • Contribute to the fight against energy precariousness.
  • Strengthen their commitment to a citizen-led and solidarity-based energy transition.

By providing all stakeholders in the energy sector with the means to get involved and take action, Énergie Solidaire enhances the capacity of associations to reduce the number of households in energy precarity.

The project started in 2014 and is ongoing.

Main beneficiaries: low income consumers, the energy poor.

It addresses the topics of: distributional effects and energy prices.
