This webinar is the 3rd in the series of the three Knowledge Transfer Thematic Webinars at EU level of the H2020 ComAct project, which aims to raise discussion on the needs and challenges of energy-poor households and on the inclusive policy required to secure an accessible and affordable energy transition.
The H2020 project ComAct is organising a session on 19 September 2022, from 10:30 until 12:00, as part of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) extended programme to exchange knowledge and findings related to different ways to finance energy transition by increasing energy efficiency.
A special focus is set on the energy poverty issue in multi-apartment buildings, which is often not considered in designing new financial schemes and subsidy programs. While co-financing for middle- and high-income owners can be provided through various financial instruments, for low-income owners and those suffering from energy poverty, national schemes should provide a different type of support so that they can be efficiently involved in the programs. This interactive session targets all stakeholders working on developing new financial schemes to finance energy transition and also those protecting the rights of vulnerable consumers.
