The Naturgy Foundation organizes tomorrow a training session of the School of Energy in the municipality of La Rinconada, aimed at families who are in a situation of energy vulnerability. The goal is to offer guidelines for more efficient energy consumption, reducing the amount of your bill without losing the comfort conditions at home.
The call in La Rinconada, which is done by the City Council, will be on June 13. The other two sessions will take place in collaboration with the Aljaraque Foundation on June 14 and 25.
So far this year, the Naturgy Foundation has already organized another seven days of the Energy School in different locations in Seville, which have been attended by around 70 vulnerable families.
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.”
Since its launch in June 2017, the School of Energy has trained more than 15,600 people, including families in situations of energy vulnerability and technicians from the Third Sector and the administration throughout Spain.
Any entity or city council that wants to offer this type of free training can contact the Naturgy Foundation through the Foundation’s website (www.fundacionnaturgy.org) or in the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
