In the EU, over 100 million people, mostly vulnerable, cannot keep their homes comfortably cool in summer. Hence more attention is needed to the issue of summertime energy poverty (SEP), in research and in policy-making.
The event “Summer energy poverty: thinking outside of the box” will take place within the EUSEW extended programme on the 19th of September, 2022, 15:00-16:30h CET.
Today we are going to introduce to you the moderator of the event Mrs. Katharina Habersbrunner. Mrs. Habersbrunner is board member at Women Engage for a Common Future WECF, an international NGOs striving for sustainable and (gender) just environmental solutions.
WECF’s climate and energy programmes include projects in Africa, Central Asia and Europe. Prior to this, Katharina served as Risk Manager at Munich Re Group. Her professional expertise is decentralized citizen’s energy projects, local energy markets, energy efficiency and advocating for socially-sound and gender-just energy solutions on national and international level.
Katharina Habersbrunner, winner of 2020 EUSEW Women in Energy award will be the moderator of the event “Summer energy poverty: thinking outside of the box”.
