2016-07-05 Germany: EPORE - Energy Poverty Reduction in Eastern Europe

EPORE - Energy Poverty Reduction in Eastern Europe

Description of the project offered: 
EPORE supports clearly defined groups of vulnerable consumers in tackling fuel poverty. The project aims at improving energy efficiency programmes especially in Eastern European countries, where there is a large stock of Soviet-era communal buildings / apartment blocks. Many buildings fall into the lowest energy efficiency categories and by implementing simple and cheap measures substantial long term savings can be achieved. 
Project outputs: 1. Creation of new working positions called “energy scanners”, lower educated and long-term unemployed people trained to undertake an energy screening of the energy situation of a household, in which the household receive energy saving tips and energy saving devices (such as light bulb); 2) Guideline for addressing fuel poverty definition, condition and transfer of best practice (delivered to national policy-makers), 3) Manual with tailored scheme of incentives in three specific selected regions belonging to the consortium; the incentives will be of two kinds. Direct incentives and indirect incentives; 4) Pilot action in the three areas, consisting in the implementation of the incentives and monitoring outcomes in terms of energy consumption reduction, energy condition
improvements and CO2 reduction after 12 months project.
Project target group: 
• vulnerable consumers in Eastern European countries affected by energy poverty
• national policy-makers in consortium countries
Project results: 
• Definition and characterization of the energy poverty issue in the consortium countries [2]
• Raising awareness about energy efficiency and energy poverty thanks to the training and
creation of “energy scanners” [1]
• Definition and customization of territorial scheme of incentives in the consortium regions
• Assessment of the supremacy of direct and indirect incentives to face energy poverty [3]
• Implementation of the pilot action in 3 territories [4]
• Capitalization, communication and dissemination

Description of the collaboration sought: 
EPORE project is looking for the following partners skills: energy efficiency analysis, energy poverty analysis, energy incentives knowledge, consumer attitude analysis, energy poverty best practice development, dwelling and tenure analysis, energy grants and loan experts.

The partners will be involved in the project in a balance way. The work will be divided in the following task: 1) development of a training strategy for the creation of new working positions called "energy scanners", 2) fuel poverty analysis in terms of tailored definition, criteria for characterization, 3) individuation of best practices and inclusion in the guideline, 4) elaboration of a regional scheme for incentives, 5) pilot actions implementation in three areas. Further tasks are related to the project results communication.
