While accelerator particle physics has traditionally focused on exploring dark matter through highenergy experiments, testing dark-sectors hypothesis requires innovative low energy experiments that use highintensity beams and high-sensitivity detectors. In this scenario attractive opportunities are offered to low energy machines and flavour experiments. In this paper we will focus our attention on the Dark Photon (DP) scenario, reviewing the current status of searches and new opportunities with particular attention to the PADME experiment at Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati.
