Energy poverty recommendations

Moving beyond the triad of “low income – poor energy efficiency – high expenditure”, EmpowerMed partners propose policy recommendations highlighting other sides of energy poverty and how to tackle them: summertime energy poverty, gender issues and energy poverty and health nexus.

Here are some of the recommendations issued from the grassroot pilot projects:

  • – Tackling energy poverty through integrated policies
  • – Engendering energy poverty indicators
  • – Designing climate adaptation plans to embrace summer energy poverty
  • – Employing accessible low-tech solutions and passive cooling
  • – Recognising and acting on the mental health dimensions of energy poverty
