Concept:   Increasing energy costs and inadequate energy efficiency progress keep energy poverty at high levels in the EU. Energy poverty in the private rented sector (PRS) represents a particular category and of major concern since it is a phenomenon that is rising.   Due to the difficulty to identify and measure energy-poor households in the PRS and the lack of information and split incentives, it is difficult to adequately address the issue.

The first webinar of the Electrification Academy   The European Green Deal envisions a carbon neutral Europe by 2050. Electrification is a powerful tool that can help catapult Europe’s energy transition forward. Accelerated changes are needed in the power, buildings and transport sectors, but they will fail to emerge without robust policies closely aligned with the decarbonisation goal.

Around 50 million households in the European Union are estimated to be living in energy poverty – or energy vulnerability, unable to afford the energy needed to adequately heat or cool their homes. This is caused by a combination of factors including high energy costs, low household incomes and energy inefficient buildings, and can have severe impacts on health and wellbeing.

The Efficient Buildings Community has just developed a new set of recommendations for European and National decision-makers.   The eight recommendations are grounded in the experience of the Mediterranean local authorities and they aim to bring the lessons learned in the discussion about the next generation of energy policies: the European Green Deal, issued by the Commission last December, and the recovery plans in response to Covid-19, currently underway in each Member State.
