ENGIE Rassembleurs d'Energies

At a time when 20% of the world’s population has no access to electricity and over one person in four is facing fuel poverty in Europe, access to energy, which is an essential service, is central to combating poverty. Via ENGIE Rassembleurs d’Energies, the Group wants to place its industrial performance at the service of energy for all.

Since 2011, the Group has set a unifying dynamics into motion to help population groups in fuel poverty in Europe and throughout the world. The aim of ENGIE Rassembleurs d’Energies is to contribute to developing energy access for impoverished population groups in the less developed countries and to combat fuel poverty in developed countries.

The three areas of action available to ENGIE Rassembleurs d’Energies:
