Interactive training: Making energy poverty mitigation an effective part of your climate & energy planning
3 July 2023, 10:00 - 12:00
Energy prices have soared, causing financial hardship for people unable to pay their bills. Short-term policies have been implemented at the national level, but prices remain unbearable for many households in Europe. Local measures are needed to reduce costs and alleviate energy poverty. The Sun4All project replicates New York State's utility bill assistance to lower electricity costs for vulnerable citizens in four European cities. This approach integrates energy poverty alleviation into Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAP), recognizing its connection to climate and energy planning. Cities must assess affected individuals, implement low-cost actions, develop strategies, and use relevant indicators to address energy poverty effectively.
Join us for a 2-hour interactive online session where we will co-create a deeper understanding of how to approach these tasks and what kind of tools are available to support you in this process. A guided discussion will ensure an exchange on challenges and opportunities experienced.
This is the first of a series of webinars organised within the Sun4All Capacity Building and Knowledge Sharing Programme. This session is brought to you by Sun4All in collaboration with the project POWERPOOR which, based on experience with many trainings around Europe on this topic, will introduce its easy-to-use toolkit to help you TARGET, FUND and ACT on energy poverty now.
Sun4All Capacity Building and Knowledge Sharing Programme is designed to assist cities and other stakeholders with the replication and adoption of the Sun4All programme in their cities and regions. Sun4All Capacity Building and Knowledge Sharing Programme is targeting cities, utilities, and other interested stakeholders at various stages of the energy poverty alleviation journey, i.e., different level of capacities and preparation.
