Invitation to the 2nd Workshop on “The status of Energy Poverty in Greece and the contribution of green and social innovation to address the problem”
The Heinrich Böll Foundation Greece, the social cooperative ANEMOS ANANEOSIS / Wind of Renewal and the Institute for Zero Energy Buildings, which are active in the fields of ecology, energy savings and sustainability, joined forces with the aim of publishing a policy report on “The status of Energy poverty in Greece and the contribution of green and social innovation to address the problem”. Within this context we organised the 1st workshop in Athens, in April, which had as its main objective the exchange of views and good practice in dealing with energy poverty. See more here
