CAN Europe: Tackling Energy Poverty Through National Energy And Climate Plans: Priority Or Empty Promise?

Energy poverty is an increasingly pressing issue in the EU with nearly 34 million people unable to afford to adequately heat, cool or light their homes. Around 15% of Europeans live in poorly insulated homes with a leaking roof, damp walls, floors or foundations. This complex topic can only be addressed through social, economic and energy policies that protect the most vulnerable in our society.



Multi-Stakeholder Online Workshop: Making Climate Action Happen

Financing climate and clean energy strategies and measures through Recovery and Resilience Plans and Cohesion Policy programming in Central and Eastern Europe.

At the workshop, we will be looking at how EU funding from the Recovery and Resilience Facility, Cohesion Policy funds and the Just Transition Fund can deliver on the higher climate ambition and what role National Energy and Climate Plans play in the process. The workshop also provides opportunities for multilateral exchange on the experiences and best practices on climate integration in accordant EU funds spending plans.



Towards a climate-neutral EU: funding and incentives for a transformative European Green Deal and Recovery Plan

European Environmental Bureau and Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) has started in October 2020 a new project with the participation of CEEWeb (membership across CEE), Economic PoIicy Institute (BG), Centre for Transport and Energy (CZ), Green Liberty (LV), Polish Green Network (PL), Focus Eco Center (RO), Umanotera (SI) and Centre for Sustainable Alternatives (SK). The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). This project aims to have an impact on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), i.e. the EU budget for the period 2021–27) and the Recovery and Resilience Facility by providing inputs to policy process work, exchanging views, increasing awareness on the necessity of making this EU budget climate-proof and developing targeted recommendations for improving the use of EU funds.
