ASSIST (Support Network for Household Energy Saving) is an European project funded by the European Commission under the H2020 programme. Its aim is to fight energy poverty by actively engaging consumers in the energy market, generating a positive change of behaviour in relation to energy consumption and to influence the design of energy poverty-oriented policies.

ASSIST, started on the 1st of May 2017, foresees the development of several activities over a 3 year period in 6 European countries: Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium and Finland.
