The Covenant of Mayors Europe joined forces with the ENPOR Project and the EU Energy Poverty Advisory Hub to organise a workshop entitled:

“Energy Poverty: Why is it important and how can municipalities fight it?” as part of the Climate Alliance International Conference on 9 September 2021, 14:00-15:30 CET online |Register here: http://ow.ly/qJWz50FJYFS.

The current pandemic has shown the urgent need to tackle energy poverty if we are to create a social Europe that meets the needs of all its inhabitants. Municipalities also have a key role to play in fighting energy poverty by making energy services such as heating and cooling affordable and through measures that help their citizens to use less energy in the first place. This workshop will explore the key drivers and barriers to alleviate energy poverty as well as solutions in a municipal setting.

The Workshop will take place in English and online, no fee involved, registration required (open until 2nd of September 2021).
