At the 6th edition of the Just Transition Platform, taking place in hybrid format in Brussels on 24–26 October 2022, the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub will be represented by Jeppe Mikel Jensen during the session ''Tackling energy poverty in times of crisis'', on Tuesday 25 October at 11:30 CEST.
About the session:
Energy poverty is a reality in the EU, where many households struggle to heat or cool their homes or to pay their energy bills on time. High energy prices of the past year have increasingly been affecting European households and businesses and have worsened the situation for the most vulnerable groups. This session will focus both on the problem of energy poverty and the solutions to it, focusing on energy efficiency measures, a community approach to energy production, and the role of prosumers. We will dive into recent EU policy responses to combat the surge of energy poverty, provide information to public authorities on how to tackle energy poverty, and present projects that demonstrate innovative solutions to tackle energy poverty in these times of crisis.
