In recent years, energy poverty has gained recognition as a significant challenge for policy-makers. The European Commission has expressed its commitment to tackling energy poverty and protecting vulnerable consumers. However, there is still no common EU approach to this issue, as each Member State is responsible for implementing its own policies. This briefing provides an overview of selected energy poverty measures in five European countries (the Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia) to illustrate different understandings and approaches to tackling energy poverty across Europe.
How local energy ownership can contribute to a just and secure energy transition? This is especially important now that the EU's dependence on imported energy sources and the implications of this on energy prices have become even more visible in light of the energy crisis. Join the discussion during European Sustainable Energy Week.
We invite you to a webinar with James Turrito from the Clean Air Task Force, who has been mapping methane leaks from gas infrastructure in the EU, including the Czech Republic. The event will take place on 31 August 2022 at 2pm online on Zoom.
The LIFE TogetherFor1.5 is a Pan-European project which aims to align the EU’s climate action with the 1.5°C objective of the Paris Agreement, building on climate and energy policy opportunities at the national and EU level.
The aim of the project is to contribute to support the efficient use of EU money in the participating countries, highlight best practices and ‘lessons learnt’, and widely disseminate these observations both nationally and internationally. Thus, the project will help to improve the level and quality of EU funding and fiscal policy for EU climate action and EGD delivery by focusing on the game-changing actions at the national level.
The EEB and the Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) launched a new project in October 2020. It aims to fom the EU budget for the period 2021-27 and the European Recovery Plan. Consortium members provide expert input to the policy process and strive to fulfil the participatory principle.
Centre for Transport and Energy is a non-profit non-governmental organisation founded in 1998 that focuses on the environmental impacts of transportation and energy production.
