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.
We are continuing to introduce you shortly our speakers and the topics we shall address during the session. Today we are going to introduce you Dr. Carmen Sánchez Guevara, PhD. Carmen has a PhD in Architecture and is a Lecturer at the School of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Madrid. She is a researcher in the Bioclimatic Architecture in a Sustainable Environment Research Group, and a lecturer in the Master’s Degree in Environment and Bioclimatic Architecture also taught at the UPM. Her research focuses on energy poverty from the perspective of the right to habitability and thermal comfort in housing. She is currently working on two European funded projects focused on this topic: EPIU in which a service for vulnerable households is being developed and COOLTORISE aimed at improving summer energy conditions of vulnerable households.
Dr. Guevara, PhD will present the topic “COOLTORISE: Practical solutions in the context of combating summer energy poverty”.
