Tailored measures supporting energy vulnerable households

Descripción del proyecto

Acciones contra la vulnerabilidad energética

Una vivienda requiere unos niveles adecuados de calefacción, refrigeración, alumbrado y energía para los electrodomésticos. La pobreza energética está relacionada con un conjunto de efectos negativos para la salud y el bienestar de las personas, que se ven afectados por las bajas temperaturas y el estrés asociado con facturas energéticas inasequibles. Ayudar a los Estados miembros en sus esfuerzos para combatir la pobreza energética es una de las prioridades principales de la Unión Europea, donde la pobreza energética afecta a cincuenta millones de hogares. El proyecto EnergyMEASURES, financiado con fondos europeos, abordará esta cuestión en siete países europeos. Trabajará con hogares afectados por la pobreza energética para mejorar su eficacia energética con medidas de bajo coste y cambios en prácticas y comportamientos. El proyecto trabajará asimismo con municipios, cooperativas de viviendas y otros agentes clave para evaluar la interacción de contextos institucionales multinivel.

Objetivo

Between 50 and 125 million people are at risk of energy poverty in the EU. Efforts to address this issue will require a suite of measures informed by participatory and inclusive approaches. EnergyMEASURES will work to address energy poverty in seven European countries (BE, BG, IE, MK, NL, PL, UK) through two complementary and synergistic strands of work. Namely, through direct household engagements that are complemented and informed by cutting edge policy and practice innovations. The first strand will involve working with energy poor households to improve their energy efficiency through a combination of low-cost measures, and changes in their energy-related behaviours and practices. EnergyMEASURES will map out key indicators characterising those most at-risk of energy poverty, and will leverage partners’ ongoing projects and use their existing relationships with energy poor and at-risk households to recruit them for the household energy engagement programmes. Recruited householders will be provided with low-cost energy measures and empowered to change their energy-related behaviours and practices through an approach that is cognisant of existing housing conditions and is reflective of the lived experience of householders. The second strand will comprise working with municipalities, energy authorities, housing associations and other relevant actors to assess how current multi-level institutional contexts affect efforts to alleviate energy vulnerability in the participating countries. These interlinked activities will also consider gender differentials in both people’s relationship with institutional actors and their lived experience of energy, and EnergyMEASURES will work to mainstream this approach across the wider energy poverty community. Through this work the project contributes to reducing participants’ vulnerability to energy poverty, while at the same time cutting household energy consumption and associated GHG emissions.
