Millions of Europeans struggle to pay their energy bills and keep their homes sufficiently warm or cool, while also being affected in different ways by existing transport barriers. The COVID-19 pandemic has further aggravated these problems. In this context, a fair, just, and inclusive energy transition becomes a complex but essential challenge.
The session, part of the European Week of Regions and Cities will address:
- The new Energy Poverty Advisory Hub (EPAH)
- Regional disparities in energy poverty: tackling the problem at the source
- Empowering vulnerable groups during the transition: the role of EU legislation and policy
- Transport poverty and energy transition: the current state of play and the challenges ahead
