The Naturgy Foundation will make its Energy School and volunteers from the energy company available to Energy Without Borders to collaborate in the "Energy Vulnerability" project of the partner organisation. The president of Energy Without Borders, Pilar Sevillaand the general director of Naturgy Foundation, María Eugenia Coronado, signed a collaboration agreement today to work jointly
The study ‘Energy Poverty in Europe: a comparative analysis’, which the Naturgy Foundation is presenting today, calls for the implementation of structural measures with a medium- and long-term impact that involve improved energy efficiency, renewable energies and changes to consumers’ energy habits, with the aim of improving polices to combat energy poverty.
The two entities have collaborated for the past three years to develop joint programmes to combat energy vulnerability, a problem that has been worsened this year by the social and economic consequences of the pandemic.
Rehabilitations have been carried out in 350 homes and 4,500 informational workshops have been held, in addition to the advice on energy-related matter provided by volunteers from both organisations.
This year, Naturgy donated over 2 million euros to the Red Cross for the purchase of medical supplies to fight the pandemic.
The energy company’s foundation has carried out over 600 rehabilitations that have benefited 15,000 people, and the Energy School has offered training on energy efficiency to vulnerable households that are receiving help from Cáritas.
A unique initiative will be developed in Ávila as part of this new agreement, bringing together renewable power generation and the improvement of vulnerable people’s employability
