Energia in Periferia (Energy in the suburbs)National project
Banco dell'energia receives funds from private donors which ask to develop the project "Energy in the suburbs" in a precise city. Banco dell'energia identifies the non-profit organisations deeply rooted in the city of interest and able to take an active part in the project. Their role is to identify the beneficiaries (vulnerable families in energy poverty), to pay them energy bills through the funds received by Banco dell'energia and to do a timely report of payments. Moreover, the non-profit organisations, with the support of Banco, carry out the activity of energy education and data collection through the professional figures of TEDs. One or more scientific partners analyse the data collected in order to issue specific reports on Energy Poverty.
Just a ChangeNational project
Just a Change is a non-profit dedicated to rebuilding homes for those living in Housing Deprivation and Energy Poverty. Renovating a house is an opportunity to rebuild a life. Improving living conditions leads to a reduction in health and safety risks. But it also means improving general living conditions of the population, thus resulting in a decline of poverty and criminality, bringing improvements in public health and energy efficiency. A new house assures a better quality of life, and the impact of the renovated home affects their daily life in terms of health, hope and safety.
