The Naturgy Foundation has relaunched its Energy School virtually, through webinars aimed at Social Services professionals throughout Spain. It is thus resuming the activity of this initiative, which was carried out on a face-to-face basis and travelled throughout Spain until the state of health emergency was decreed a few weeks ago.
More than 200 professionals from government bodies and social entities have already attended the first online training sessions held to explain the new regulations in the field of energy resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. These sessions have also offered simple tips on efficient consumption habits to counteract the expected increase in consumption during confinement.
“We want to keep on working alongside the professionals who, from town halls and social organisations, help thousands of vulnerable families reduce their energy bills and adopt efficient consumption patterns at this particularly complicated time,” explains María Eugenia Coronado, managing director of the Naturgy Foundation.
During the next sessions, which will take place in May and June, other topics will also be dealt with such as the subsidised rate and how to understand and manage energy bills.
The next training sessions will take place tomorrow (Friday) at 11 am, and on 14, 22 and 29 May at the same time. Anyone interested in registering should contact the Foundation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 20,000 people trained
The Energy School is a project within the framework of Naturgy’s Vulnerability Plan.
It was launched in 2017 and has since trained more than 20,000 people, including professionals and vulnerable families, in more than 650 municipalities.
