CINEA Report: An Inclusive Energy Transition

Visual CINEA people gathered around with lightbulbs

Achieving a citizen-centred and inclusive energy transition requires harnessing affordable and clean energy solutions while facilitating the active participation of consumers in line with the aims of the European Green Deal. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights 15 EU-funded projects that are making this happen.

The Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency programme (2014-2020) and its successor, the LIFE Clean Energy Transition programme (2021-2027), provide funding for a wide range of activities towards an energy efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and resilient economy. This CORDIS Results Pack on an Inclusive Energy Transition presents 15 EU-funded projects helping to shape the green transition for the benefit of all citizens. A number of projects presented help alleviate energy poverty through efficiency measures, enabling uptake of renewable energy solutions, building the capacity of relevant actors and cooperating with other initiatives such as the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub - EPAH. ComAct coordinated homeowners to unlock energy efficient improvements in multi-family apartment buildings. COOLTORISE piloted measures to reduce the impact of heatwaves in low-energy efficient households. EmpowerMed supported women in the Mediterranean to tackle energy poverty. In addition, EnergyMEASURES provided personalised household energy management measures. STEP trained consumer and frontline organisations to support energy-poor households. ENPOR aimed to make energy poverty in the private rented sector more detectable and measurable. Meanwhile, SocialWatt aided utilities, energy companies and other stakeholders in identifying energy-poor households to address energy poverty.
