The foundation of the energy company organizes these sessions together with the town councils of the two municipalities. Around 80 people have received this training so far this year in the province of Malaga.

In the coming days the Naturgy Foundation is organising two Energy School training sessions in the province of Málaga for families in a situation of energy vulnerability. The aim is to offer them some guidelines on how to consume energy more efficiently, so they can reduce the amount of their bills without affecting their home comfort.

The sessions are made by the Municipality of Mijas, on June 11 (at 11 am, at the House of Culture of Las Lagunas, c / San Valentín), and the City of Malaga, on June 12 (a 10 am at the Social Services office, Isaac Peral, No. 23).

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 Sevilladirector 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.”
