Pilot energy poor support programmes/schemes will be designed, developed, and implemented in eight countries across Europe led by a network of certified Energy Supporters and Energy Mentors with the support of Stakeholder Liaison Groups. The National Stakeholder Liaison Groups will facilitate the engagement of and will provide support to citizens facing from energy poverty, reinforcing the network of Energy Supporters and Energy Mentors working on the field as well as facilitate the sustainability of the toolkit and the action.  Based on the experience gained and the lessons learnt from implementing POWERPOOR, EU policy recommendations and 8 National Roadmaps will be elaborated, so that policy makers at all governance levels can gain insights based on the project results.
