Exploring the relationship between energy poverty and decarbonisation policies in Europe

Researchers, practitioners and policymakers are invited to select from engaging sessions over four days. The event is open to all and free to attend.

Organised by the Fuel Poverty Research Network, Defesa do consumidor (DECO), Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research (CENSE -FCT NOVA), and the ENGAGER-COST (European Energy Poverty: Agenda Co-Creation and Knowledge Innovation funded by European Co-operation in Science and Technology) network.

The event will focus on collaborative learning on important questions relating to ensuring fairness in the transition to decarbonised energy and housing systems. It will bring together people with a shared interest in energy, housing and fairness working in different sectors and across Europe, including high-profile speakers from research, Government, European institutions and consumer organisations.

Organisers are offering a range of online sessions to select from over the course of a week, including:

  • An online library of presentations to watch at your leisure in the run up to the conference.
  • Plenary sessions focused on Portugal, Europe, and the future of energy poverty research.
  • Panel discussions featuring active energy poverty researchers and practitioners, and plenty of opportunity for audience participation.
  • Three interactive sessions looking at gender and energy poverty, social movements, and the relationship between transport poverty and energy poverty.
