In today's episode of Efficiency Optimized, host Francesco Palmia from ICLEI Europe discusses the social impacts energy efficiency, or a lack thereof, can have on energy poverty, with guest and energy expert Florin Vondung, from Wuppertal Institute.
The episode provides a definition and overview of energy poverty and health issues derived from to it (which both fall under the social impact category used within the MICAT project), describes how energy efficiency can reduce the effect of energy poverty on European citizens, and provides examples of measures which can be taken to alleviate energy poverty and related health issues. Follow along as the discussion also unveils the relevance and political need for the reduction of energy poverty at the local, national and EU levels.
