• Publication of Policy Paper and Project Conclusion


    The final publication of the project has also been published and uploaded to the website.

    The Policy Paper, "Alleviating Energy Poverty in Romania and beyond", was authored by Andreas Schneller and Jakob Hoffmann of adelphi and Anca Sinea of the UBB.

  • Closing workshop and presentation of outputs


    To wrap up the project and present the outputs generated over the last 18 months, the project team hosted an online workshop. The participants list consisted of energy poverty experts from around the world.

    The workshop started with an overview of the lessons learned throughout the course of the project, the challenges and difficulties faced, and how these were overcome. The focus here was on the challenges of collecting data from diverse sources from both the public and private sector.

  • Closing Workshop Wednesday April 21st


    As the project nears its end and the final papers are being prepared for publication, the project team will be hosting an online workshop to present the project results. 

  • Interactive Energy Poverty Map of Cluj-Napoca now Online


    We are very excited to publish the interactive map of energy poverty in the Cluj-Napoca area on our website.

    The map allows the user to apply different filters based on the drivers or associated indicators of energy poverty and thus see where the phenomenon is clustered. The map is an important output for the project as it allows us to identify where energy poverty is prevalent and match it with the energy consumption data for those areas to find potential correlations between energy poverty and higher GHG emissions. 

  • Adapting the Project activities to the COVID-19 pandemic


    As the lockdown eases and we slowly move towards a new form of normal in our office and everyday life, we reflect upon how we have used the quarantine time to work on the project and what impact it has had on our activities.

    We seized the opportunity presented by everyone working from home and all events being cancelled to conclude our energy poverty expert interviews with nearly two dozen interviews conducted. The qualitative data gathered throughout these interviews will be instrumental in informing our policy paper.
