Mr. Georgi Simeonov from Partner CSEG presented Cooltorise, emphasizing on its objectives and project indicators. The presentation created large interest among Bulgarian stakeholders, because after the presentation there were questions and topics raised by the participants. It was pointed out that Cooltorise is probably the first initiative in Bulgaria tackling the topic of summer energy poverty providing direct connection between climate change issues and home energy efficiency. Its results will be of high interest to Bulgarian policymakers, and stakeholders like local and regional adminsitrations, energy actors, and NGOs.
