Tackling energy poverty and air pollution


  • DATE OF THE EVENT: June 3, 2021
  • TIME: 13.30 - 14.30
  • LOCATION: online

Proper combustion of fuels is essential to minimise impacts on air quality and for efficient use of energy. In large parts of Europe, low-income households often suffer from a combination of poor domestic heating systems, insufficient insulation and limited financial resources to access sustainable energy services.

This event focuses on the tight connections between air quality and energy poverty and the multiple wins household energy renovations have for the vulnerable energy consumers.

Confirmed speakers:

Teresa Aristegui, Policy Officer at DG Energy, European Commission

Ina Karova, sustainable development expert at the Energy Agency of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

João Pedro Gouveia, Senior Researcher, PhD at CENSE, FCT-NOVA University of Lisbon

The event is organised as a partner event of the EU Green Week 2021.
