EPAH lunch talk - One year on the energy poverty topic in retrospective: reflections and expectations for 2023

The Energy Poverty Advisory Hub continues its series of lunch talks with a third event about a perspective of the year 2022 on energy poverty and what to expect for 2023 on this topic.

Energy poverty has been an important issue during the year 2022. The geopolitical context and the energy crisis have reinforced situations of energy poverty. Many actors have acted to address this growing challenge by continuing the work already done and by being innovative and implementing new sets of emergency measures. This lunch talk proposes to have an exchange around this past year to reflect on what happened and to discuss together the challenges for the year 2023.

The agenda:

  • 13:30 - Introduction
  • 13:35 - Keynote speech by Stefan Bouzarovski, Professor at the University of Manchester
  • 13:40 - Presentation of the municipality of Getafe, Spain
  • 13:50 - Open conversation with participants. Sharing experiences on these 3 questions:
    • Did you face any unexpected challenges during the past year that had an effect on the vulnerable consumers? What where they?
    • What do you think will be the situation in 2023 and what actions are you planning?
    • What new measures/policies would you like to see at the EU level?
