ENPOR Lunch Talk: Will Fit for 55 help the energy poor?

  Tuesday, 07. 12. 2021, 12:30-13:10 CET

The third Lunch Talk will focus on how the Fit for 55 Package impacts energy poverty – with invited guests Ms Louise Sunderland (Regulatory Assistance Project, RAP), Hélène Sibileau (Building Performance Institute Europe, BPIE), Emmanuelle Causse and Emil Martini (International Union of Property Owners, UIPI), Ina Karova (Energy Agency Plovdiv) and Zita Kakalejcikova (Habitat for Humanity International).

Energy efficient renovation of the exising housing stock is one of the main solutions to reduce energy poverty. In the case of privately rented housing, renovating these homes require to overcome several existing conflicts and problems. We will explore why and how minimum energy performance standards could contribute to alleviating energy poverty, especcially in the private rented sector and what are the solutions and pitfalls of standards, certification schemes and compliance to these in the light of the Fit for 55 package for deep renovation in Europe.

Can Minimum Energy Performance Standards be a solution? How can local, regional and national authorities convince landlords to increase energy efficiency of the private rental housing stock? What elements of the Fit for 55 Package can support the housing revolution?

The Energy Poverty Dashboard (EPD) Is Available

Did you miss the launch of the Energy Poverty Dashboard (EPD) for the private rented sector? Watch the recording of the online launch and learn about how to use the EPD!


This tool will increase the visibility of energy poverty in the PRS, particularly compared with levels of energy poverty within the general population. Search for opportunities for collaboration, find best practices and policies tackling energy poverty in the PRS via this map. The Dashboard will also indicate where they are concentrated and the effects/impacts of the policies on tackling energy poverty.

Do you know about, run or implement policy to tackle energy poverty in the PRS? Let us know and put it on the Dashboard via the Submit form!

Tune in to the Energy Poverty Advisory Hub's Launch Event

Today and tomorrow the EPAH has its launch event.

On the second day (Tomorrow) 10:00-11:00 in a workshop the Covenant of Mayors gives a first insight in its updated energy poverty indicators. Consider the following questions before tuning in: What have been the main challenges faced in measuring energy poverty? What type of EP related indicators are best for local policy integration (municipality level)? What other indicators could provide interesting information for energy poverty measurement on local level?

45 organisations call on EU to deliver on Renovation Wave commitment to tackle energy poverty

Last year, the European Commission committed to tackle energy poverty by including 35 million home renovations in their 2020 Renovation Wave strategy. Today, over 45 NGOs, trade unions and social justice groups have sent an open letter to the EU Commission, urging them to enhance the effort of members states to reduce energy poverty by delivering on its commitment to deep renovate over 35 million homes..

The energy price crisis makes delivering on long-term strategies for eradicating energy poverty even more pressing. Damage control to shield vulnerable households from skyrocketing energy prices this winter is crucial, but this alone won’t solve the energy crisis or eradicate energy poverty. What’s needed are long-term solutions to tackle one of the most significant causes of energy poverty: inadequate and unsafe housing that’s bad for people’s health and wealth. 75% of the EU’s building stock is deemed inefficient and leads to an estimated annual public health burden of more than €140 billion

The upcoming Buildings Directive revision is a crucial opportunity to implement the commitments made in the Renovation Wave. Studies point out that deep renovations can reduce household energy bills by more than € 400 per year. Efficient housing will drastically cut carbon emissions, reduce heating demand by 60%, and gas consumption to the equivalent of 25 of the world's largest LNG gas carriers each year.
