A National Conference titled “The role of Municipalities in fighting Energy Poverty – The launch of the first EPAH call (Il ruolo dei comuni nel contrasto alla povertà energetica – il lancio del primo bando EPAH)” will be organized on the 15.02.2022. The event is going to be online.
All representatives of municipalities, foundations, NGOs, civil society representatives are invited to join the conference.
The conference will deepen the European, national and local political framework in fighting energy poverty. The main focus will be the role of municipalities in relation to energy poverty. European and national projects will be presented on this topic – the Municipality of Parma will take the opportunity to present the COOLtoRISE project.
Municipalities play an important role in tackling energy poverty as super partes – characteristic which really makes them different from all the other market players. Having direct contact with citizens, local authorities can act as aggregators promoting the union of different actors on the ground (i.e., associations, non-profit, social actors, utilities, etc.). At the same time, they can play a leading role in the field initiatives, from mapping the phenomenon to implement concrete actions to help citizens who live in energy poverty conditions.
