European Energy Poverty: Agenda Co-Creation and Knowledge Innovation (ENGAGER)

European Energy Poverty: Agenda Co-Creation and Knowledge Innovation (ENGAGER) is a research network funded via the European Co-operation in Science and Technology (COST) scheme. It aims to develop and grow an international community of researchers and practitioners focused on combating energy poverty. ENGAGER runs until December 2022. The network (also called ‘Action’ by COST) involves more than 60 representatives of, inter alia, universities, research institutes, governments, businesses, advocacy groups and think tanks from at least 30 different countries. The Action operates across disciplinary domains that have rarely communicated to date, having mobilised significant numbers of researchers and activists from countries where energy poverty rates are high but the issue is under-represented in the public polity. ENGAGER is organised in four work packages focusing on, respectively, knowledge integration, measurement frameworks, knowledge exchange and socio-technical innovation. Its principal activities include organising and supporting international conferences, workshops, exchanges and study visits; as well as producing scientific outputs and policy briefs.

Family intelligent Energy Saving Target Action (FIESTA)

Tags: BehaviourChildren

The project (IEE/13/624) aims to help families with children save energy at home, acting on their electricity consumption behaviour and appliance-purchasing decisions through a comprehensive programme, including an energy audit tool and energy efficiency guide for households. Energy Help Desks have been created in 14 cities, and specific support measures have been devised, including workshops for schools & social housing residents, as well as cooling solutions retailers & installers, and home energy efficiency lotteries and consumer purchasing groups.

French Energy Poverty Observatory (Observatoire National de la Précarité Énergétique - ONPE)

The Observatory takes into consideration the social, energy, health and economic aspects of energy poverty. It is a permanent monitoring and evaluation tool which provides decision-making tools to the government, national agencies, communities, energy providers, associations and professionals working in energy poverty. The Observatory contains different policies and common indicators of enery poverty, aims to better define the concept and to improve the use of observation, analysis, evaluation and intervention tools. It is based on the principles of neutrality, sustainability and statistical reliability.

Fuel Poverty and Energy Efficiency Group (FPEEG)

FPEEG, the Fuel Poverty and Energy Efficiency Group, is a coalition of cross party MPs and industry stakeholders committed to maintain awareness in Parliament of fuel poverty issues; to monitor and comment on progress against Government’s targets to eradicate fuel poverty; to advocate policies that deliver affordable warmth for vulnerable households with emphasis on improved domestic energy efficiency including effective thermal insulation alongside efficient and effective heating systems.
