The Naturgy Foundation is organising three Energy School training sessions in Alcoi, in collaboration with the town council. The aim is to offer guidelines to vulnerable families on how to consume energy more efficiently, lowering their energy bills without affecting home comfort.
The first session will take place tomorrow, 21 January, at 11am in the Zona Norte Social Centre (Av. d’Andalusia, 13). The other two sessions will be in the same place and at the same time on 28 January and 4 February.
The Naturgy Foundation has already organised 360 Energy School sessions in various towns around the region of Valencia, attended by more than a 3,600 families.
The Energy School sessions deal with issues related to energy efficiency or bill optimisation. It also identifies people who may have access to the subsidised rate, and helps them apply for it. “Our aim is to empower the most vulnerable people, so that they can minimise the impact of energy costs by applying the measures and advice explained in the workshops,” says Ester Sevilla, director of the Social and International Projects area of the Naturgy Foundation.
The Energy School is a Naturgy Foundation project forming part of the Naturgy Energy Vulnerability Plan. María Eugenia Coronado, Managing Director of the Naturgy Foundation, highlighted the partnership between the foundation and local authorities and social entities. “This initiative has been made possible thanks to the collaboration of experienced travel companions such as the public administrations, and the professionals and volunteers of NGOs such as the Red Cross and Caritas, and many other social entities that do a great job in municipalities all over Spain.”
Since its launch in June 2017, the Energy School has trained more than 19,000 people, including families in a situation of energy vulnerability and technicians from the Third Sector and the administration throughout Spain.
