Mitigating Energy Poverty in the private rented sector
Via ENPOR, Climate Alliance addresses a central issue of the energy transition, namely energy poverty in the private rented sector (PRS). Local authorities across Europe face the challenge of identifying the households affected by energy poverty and have even greater problems in communicating energy efficiency measures to them. ENPOR aims to overcome both challenges – making energy poverty in the PRS visible and testing energy efficiency support schemes to address it while increasing the effectiveness of policies at local or regional level at the same time.
To achieve this goal, ENPOR will monitor the dimensions of energy poverty in the PRS via an online tool, examine in depth energy poverty policies for the PRS across the EU and with the support of politicians provide policy guidelines for local governments in Europe.
Project funding period: September 2020 – August 2022
via the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 889385.
