Naturgy and its Foundation have taken a step further in the fight to alleviate energy vulnerability by involving partner companies in rehabilitating the homes of its vulnerable customers.
The Hábitat3 Foundation has started renovation works on the iconic Casa Bloc in Barcelona, in which the Naturgy Foundation is collaborating to include energy efficiency measures. The collaboration between both entities will enable 17 properties to be renovated as part of the city’s innovative social housing project.
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.
With this new collaboration there are now six social organisations that can benefit from the Naturgy Foundation's Energy Rehabilitation Solidarity Fund to improve living conditions and energy efficiency in the properties of vulnerable families.
The initiative, which is part of Naturgy’s Energy Vulnerability Plan, follows the guidelines of the National Strategy to tackle Energy Poverty 2019-2024.
