Innovate Community Heating to relieve people from Fuel Poverty

Join us on Monday, 11th February 2019, 14.00h (UTC+0) / 15.00h (CET) to find out how innovation in Community Heating can alleviate Fuel Poverty

Adequate warmth is essential to guarantee a decent standard of living and health. Fuel poverty is defined as the condition of being unable to afford to keep one’s home sufficiently heated.

It is estimated that this condition affects more than 50 million households in the European Union. The underlying causes of fuel poverty can be complex and often interrelated, these include low income, high fuel prices and poor energy efficiency performance of buildings.  

 

Poorly heated homes have a knock-on impact on health outcomes, and all that wasted energy may be a setback to our climate change ambitions.

 

Energy efficiency measures are regarded as the most effective way to tackle the root causes of fuel poverty by reducing energy demand and energy bills. According to the UK government’s Community Energy Programme, energy savings from a single community heating system are typically:

 

  • 25% compared to individual gas boilers.
  • Up to 50% compared to electric heating.

 

Local Authorities and Housing Associations offer an in-depth understanding of neighbourhoods, residents and housing stock and can target schemes which maximise the impact on fuel poverty and carbon emissions.

 

This webinar explores why we should be looking at community energy systems in the context of fuel poverty and shares insights and best practice from UK schemes. The webinar lasts approximately 45 minutes. No registration is needed.
