About the project

The SCEPA project (Scaling up the Energy Poverty Approach) is a collaboration between eight European partners, including the City of Leeuwarden.

How do we do this?

Our goal is to tackle energy poverty. We want to leverage existing solutions and tools to reduce energy poverty and have been given budget to expand this.


In Leeuwarden, we will use SCEPA to expand the activities of our Energy Portal and our Energy Coaches. We want to support low-income residents facing energy poverty to take energy-saving measures in their homes.
