Relevant Organisations


The 2GENDERS project focuses on energy poverty in Belgium. The project will describe the phenomenon and the populations affected, ascertain the wider associations, if any, between energy poverty and social relations, mobility and self-reported health, and design and deliberate possible interventions with a range of important stakeholders including the energy poor. Particular attention will be paid to gender and generational aspects of energy poverty because there is good reason to believe that energy poverty is not manifested equally between genders and generations – for example single mothers and older people may be more affected. The final aim of the project is to provide policy makers with a set of theoretically and empirically informed policy options and recommendations to alleviate both the occurrence of energy poverty in Belgium, and its effects.

Calculating and Operationalising the Multiple Benefits of Energy Efficiency in Europe (COMBI)

The improvement of energy efficiency in Europe aims at reducing overall energy consumption. The implementation of energy efficiency measures can have other “non-energy” socio-economic and environmental effects such as effects on energy poverty, which will be quantified in this project. The main outcome will be a web based tool with statistics and graphical analysis of data in all member states.
