The aim of the publication is to present the results of the survey conducted in more than 1000 households in the period 2018-2020 in Greece, regarding the level of citizens' awareness on the energy poverty,
their views on various issues directly or indirectly related to the phenomenon but also how they perceive their own role in energy poverty alleviation.

Interesting examples from Europe but also existing national policies concerning energy poverty mitigation, are included in the publication.
