Escuela de Energía Fundación Naturgy Vulnerabilidad Energy school

The foundation of the energy company organizes a technical session with personnel of Social Services of the Municipality.

Around 1.000 people have received this training so far this year in the province of Barcelona.

The Naturgy Foundation organizes two training sessions tomorrow of the Energy School in Manresa, in collaboration with the municipal consistory. The objective is to explain guidelines for more efficient energy consumption, reducing the amount of the bill without losing the comfort conditions at home.

The first, more technical workshop is aimed at municipal workers who care for vulnerable families through Social Services, and the second is open to families in the municipality.

Since 2017, the Naturgy Foundation has already organized another 10 days of the Energy School in Manresa.

The School sessions work on subjects related to energy efficiency or optimising bills. They also give information on people who might be eligible for the subsidised rate, and help them to apply for it. “What we are trying to do is empower the most vulnerable people, so they can minimise the impact of the cost of energy by applying the measures and advice explained at the workshops”, says Ester Sevilla, director of the Naturgy Foundation’s Social Projects and International area.

The Energy School is a Naturgy Foundation project and part of Naturgy’s Energy Vulnerability Plan.María Coronado, Managing Director of the Naturgy Foundation, highlights the partnerships they have with public authorities and social entities for running the School: “This initiative is only possible thanks to the support of others with a lot of experience in this field, such as the public authorities, and the professionals and volunteers from NGOs, such as Cruz Roja and Cáritas, as well as many other social organisations that are doing a great job throughout Spain.”
