Reducing Energy Poverty by Energy Efficiency Projects in Residential Buildings: The Case for Eastern Europe

24 May 2017 - 08:30 to 25 May 2017 - 14:30
, Belgium, Brussels

The problems of inefficient energy use, high energy prices, and energy poverty have consistently struck housing markets in Central and Eastern Europe. The Conference will seek to promote a better understanding of residential energy efficiency among EU policy makers; introduce improved and tailor-made EU level policy measures addressing energy poverty and security and advance a clearer understanding of how investing into residential energy efficiency will contribute to reducing energy poverty in the Easter European region.

The Conference will bring together a network of practitioners  from the public, private, and NGO sectors as well as policy makers from Europe to discuss and share lessons, present project results and recommendations as well as adopt common approaches on addressing the issue of energy poverty and residential energy efficiency in Eastern Europe, also building on the experience of the Residential Energy Efficiency for Low Income Households (REELIH) Project.
