The power company’s foundation organizes a training workshop in partnership with the local council. More than 180 people in the province of Pontevedra have received this training over the course of this year.
The Energy School from the energy company’s foundation has carried out 22 sessions, with 10 more scheduled before December, through the Oficina Municipal de Atención a la pobreza Energética y Promoción de la Eficiencia Energética [Municipal Office for Addressing Energy Poverty and Promoting Energy Efficiency, OFIMAPE].
The foundation works with local authorities and social entities such as Cruz Roja and Cáritas to use its Energy Rehabilitation Solidarity Fund and help combat energy poverty, thereby tackling a structural problem.
Launched last year and forming part of Naturgy’s Energy Vulnerability Plan, this line of action is one of the guidelines contained in the National Strategy against Energy Poverty 2019-2024 that was approved in March this year.
The company is currently working on projects to improve another 460 homes.
