This summer with its dramatic heat waves all over Europe has been hard. As the next winter comes in, different, but similar challenges lie ahead for certain parts of the population. The situation is systematically worse for specific parts of the population who often remain invisible for policy action: people with low-income, specific health conditions or those who are part of a minority.
Short-term support doesn’t go far enough. Structural and systemic changes in the energy supply and public policy are needed to truly improve the condition of vulnerable households.
During this session, city experts involved in innovative EU-funded projects (POWER UP, Wellbased, Cooltorise, Shape EU) will share their insights and experience in testing systemic changes to alleviate energy poverty. We are going to address questions related to housing and health, renewable energy access, summer energy poverty, and gender. Together we will also explore the mistakes and the respective lessons learned in the different EU initiatives and projects.
