Reducing Energy Poverty by Energy Efficiency Projects in Residential Buildings: The Case for Eastern Europe


A conference on residential energy efficiency in Eastern Europe organized by Habitat for Humanity International and USAID will be held on 24-25 April in Brussels. The first day of the conference will take place in International Associations Centre, 40 rue Washington 1050 Brussels. The second day of the conference will take place in the European Parliament premises hosted by Tamas Meszerics and Benedek Jávor, MEPs, Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance.


The problems of inefficient energy use, high energy prices, and energy poverty have consistently struck housing markets in Central and Eastern Europe and in the Western Balkans. The Conference will seek to promote a better understanding of residential energy efficiency among EU policy makers; introduce improved and tailor-made EU level policy measures addressing energy poverty and security and advance a clearer understanding of how investing into residential energy efficiency will contribute to reducing energy poverty in the Central and Eastern European region and the Western Balkans.     


The Conference will bring together a network of practitioners from the public, private and NGO sectors as well as policy makers from Europe to discuss and share lessons, present project results and recommendations as well as adopt common approaches on addressing the issue of energy poverty and residential energy efficiency in Central and Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans.  It will also build upon the experience of the Residential Energy Efficiency for Low Income Households (REELIH) Project.
