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 would like to introduce you shortly our speakers and the topics we shall address during the session.
Dr. Stefan Bouzarovski is a Professor of Human Geography at the University of Manchester, where he leads the People and Energy theme within the Manchester Urban Institute. He is an Associate of the Institute of European Energy and Climate Policy. He is an internationally leading expert in energy poverty and sustainability policy, having written over 120 scientific publications, three single-author monographs, one co-authored textbook and edited four books on these topics.
Dr. Bouzarovski will present the topic “Summer energy poverty as an outcome of climate change that disproportionally affects the vulnerable people”.
