Energy poverty is extremely widespread in Greece, affecting up to 58% of households. This becomes even more pronounced in vulnerable social groups, like refugees and migrants. From heating and cooling to daily access to the internet, access to electricity is essential in modern societies. Specifically for refugees and migrants who are already facing multiple barriers (bureaucratic, cultural, economic etc.), energy poverty can be one more important obstacle to integration. In Electra Energy Cooperative we share the common belief that clean energy should be a common good accessible to all. This is why through our work we encourage the active participation of citizens of all backgrounds in energy production.
