|Demonstration Name||Local Energy Poverty Alleviation|
|Demonstration Description||In 2022, EKYL opened a Local Energy Poverty Alleviation Office in Tallinn under the scope of the POWERPOOR initiative. The office is located in the city centre of Tallinn, in the premises of the main office of EKYL. |
The Energy Poverty Alleviation Office is a focal point for energy poverty-related issues, where an interested individual can find information about energy poverty, identify whether they suffer from the phenomenon, and get advice on low-cost energy efficiency measures, funding schemes, and/or behavioral changes that can enhance their energy efficiency.
The office will disseminate various information materials in the Estonian language, such as relevant leaflets and brochures, and engage different stakeholders, including local authorities, in thematic events and public discussions.
• communicates the benefits of implementing energy efficiency interventions and installing renewable energy sources;
• encourages people to engage in more energy-efficient behaviors, practices, and habits;
• builds a network of Energy Supporters and Mentors that will support energy-poor citizens in Estonia;
• promotes the use of the Energy Poverty Mitigation Toolkit (and how this can help citizens reduce energy consumption).
The visitors can have a free consultation on their energy consumption from an energy expert, who helps to identify if they are at risk of energy poverty and gives recommendations for energy efficient living.
Representatives of apartment associations can obtain instructions for energy-efficient renovations and the installation of renewable energy solutions for large housing estates.
