We combat energy vulnerability with Caritas: 11,495 people benefit from energy improvements in their homes

In addition to assistance in vulnerable homes, we train families and members of the NGO in efficiency.

The partnership agreement signed in June between the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation and Caritas to combat energy vulnerability through energy improvement projects in homes is taking shape.

In particular, since October, different actions have been carried out in vulnerable homes accompanied by Caritas and the NGO's own facilities, which benefit a total of 11,495 people.

Therefore, we are helping to improve electrically deficient facilities, repair and/or buy heating and refrigeration systems and closings and windows, and change to low-consumption light bulbs for the families being assisted and the houses that Caritas provides for vulnerable people.

One of the recipients is the Centro Amigo in Seville, which houses homeless people. Through this agreement, the centre will substantially improve the way it is lit and the resources used for lighting, meaning they can help more people in a situation of risk.

In addition to the changes to houses, the agreement with Caritas includes different lines of action related to consumption and efficiency habits, such as the training provided by the Energy School and the availability of the NGO’s third sector helpline.

Since it was founded in April 2017, the Energy School has carried out over 150 training sessions across Spain, and more than 1,600 people have attended.
