The conference will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, under the theme “Moving towards energy autonomy: How to guarantee social inclusion”.
The Energy Poverty Advisory Hub (EPAH), a collaborative network of stakeholders aiming to eradicate energy poverty and accelerate the just energy transition of European local governments, is the planner of the event as it is leading the EU and rasing awareness about energy poverty across Europe.
Due to the energy crisis caused by the Russian war, the EU has launched the REPowerEU plan with the ultimate goal of phasing out Russia's dependence on fossil fuels by 2030.
The REPowerEu is a needed transition to renovable fuel in order to face energy poverty after the soaring of energy prices and to work as a complement of the European Green Deal plan to reach climate neutrality by 2050.
This shift towards a faster and more sustainable energy transition for all can become an opportunity for mitigating the 34 million people in europe that is experiencing energy poverty to various degree, with the most vulnerable groups being the most affected.
Local governments, EU representatives, policymakers, energy agencies and civil society organisation will attend to the event and they will allow the participants to debate, learn from each other and share practices to develop this energy transition as soon as possible.
The event will start at 9:00 of the 28th of June and will last to 13:30 of 29th. The agenda of the conference will include a mix of keynote speeches, debates, interactive workshops and field visits.
