REVERTER - Deep REnovation roadmaps to decrease households VulnERability To Energy poveRtyNational project
REVERTER aims to decrease energy poverty in Europe by addressing the poor energy efficiency of dwellings of vulnerable households. 9 different roadmaps will be developed and tested by setting up a network of pilots and the roadmaps will target the worst performing homes first (“worst first” principle).
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.
Healthy Homes InitiativeNational project
The Healthy Homes Initiative programme managers at the Ministry of Health are helped by other government agencies, or middle actors in the community to identify eligible families, with the aim to carry out a comprehensive housing assessment by certified Home Energy Performance Advisors, and devise individualised action plans to help create warmer, drier, healthier homes.
The project aims to help energy poor homes reduce their energy bills and the environmental impact by better managing their consumption. This is done by the method of living labs. Energy advisors meet people at "energy cafés" or during home visits and follow their energy situation's evolution through time.
MCPE - Mieux comprendre les situations de précarité énergétique pour mieux les traiter/ Better understand energy poverty situations to treat them betterNational project
Les Compagnons Bâtisseurs (CBP) in the regional branch in Provence (https://www.compagnonsbatisseurs.eu/Provence) launched the project MCPE aiming to assist auto-renovations. Staff of CBP helped households with renovation but the project also developed households' awareness campaigns, sociotechnical diagnosis and provided advices.
Social project AliséeNational project
The Alisée project aims to support initiatives to reduce energy vulnerability and inequalities through sustainable reponses coordinated with all actors involved to problems encountered by working on the building, equipment, users and occupants, and by working with the various social and technical partners in the territories. Networking aims to equip professionals and volunteers with tools and methods to support households in energy poverty. It relies on raising the awareness of partners on energy and water saving, on training, on individual or collective support for inhabitants, on networking actors to set up a monitoring and data sharing system.
Plateforme de lutte contre la précarité énergétiqueNational project
Implementation of One-stop shop to tackle energy poverty in the Grenoble metropolitan area. It aims to reduce consumption, find solutions to pay bills, increase income thanks to an identification by one of the partners, diagnosis, action plan examined by a multidisciplinary committee with adapted solutions.
Energy Performance ContractsNational project
In precarious neighbourhoods of Mantes-la-Jolie (FR), privately co-owned properties tend to be excessively rundown. As a result, EPAMSA– a public development agency responsible for urban development and renovations in the Grand Paris region – successfully implemented Energy Performance Contracts to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings by specifically targeting private, precarious co-owned properties.
Face-to-Face Energy VisitsNational project
Facetoface energy visits help tackling energy poverty by visiting households living in poor conditions, providing them with advice or directing them to other help devices offering solutions tailored to their needs. The local energy and climate agency in Brest, Ener’gence, offers energy visits including technical and social support. The target group of the energy visits are inhabitants encountering difficulties in paying their energy bills or who struggle to keep their home adequately warm during winter. The activities of the energy-visits not only involve the visit itself, which last between 23 hours, but also include follow up support and an assessment.
