FAQ – EEPCON18


What is the European Energy Poverty Conference 2018?

Energy Action has successfully run Fuel Poverty Conferences in Ireland for a number of years, including a European Fuel Poverty Conference in Dublin in 2013. Our 2018 Conference is called the European Energy Poverty Conference and will feature speakers from all across European. This year’s conference theme is: “A United Approach”.  The conference will be opened by Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Mr. Denis Naughten TD.

 

What is the theme of the 2018 Conference and what does it mean?

The theme for 2018 is called, “A United Approach” which is about people coming together from all parts of Europe and beyond to find solutions for fuel poverty. It is estimated that 50 million Europeans live in energy poverty which is associated with more than 30,000 excess winter deaths in Europe per year. Despite energy poverty being an enduring problem with widespread and severe impact, up to now there has been no common European strategy for tackling it.
