The current energy crisis has drastically increased the share of households at risk of energy poverty.
This event discussed how energy efficiency can help to structurally alleviate energy poverty, in the context of Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.
This was a hybrid event, in Brussels and online.
The recordings of the different sessions can be found here: https://socialwatt.eu/en/node/110
The morning (9.30 to 12.30 CET) discussed the design and implementation of energy efficiency schemes to alleviate energy poverty, and then how to finance deeper energy renovation for energy poor households.
The afternoon (13.30 to 15.00 CET) was a streamSAVE’s dialogue workshop on “Assessing the impacts of energy efficiency schemes alleviating energy poverty”
The workshop was moderated by Kelsey van Maris and Guillermo Borragán Pedraz (VITO) and discussed the following topics:
- What is different when calculating energy savings from energy efficiency measures also tackling energy poverty? (Guillermo Borragán Pedraz and Kelsey van Maris – VITO / streamSAVE)
- Challenges in monitoring and assessing impacts of energy efficiency measures to alleviate energy poverty (Katarina Trstenjak – Jozef Stefan Institute, Slovenia)
- Assessing and comparing the impacts of measures to reduce energy poverty: results from the EmpowerMed project (Mariana Jiménez – Catalonia Energy Research Institute, Spain / EmpowerMed)
- Impacts from overcoming challenges in household energy data collection - insights from the EnergyMeasures project (Niall Dunphy - University College Cork, Ireland / EnergyMeasures project)
