Energy Poverty

Greece: living in a refugee’s building from the 60s

Greece has among the highest energy prices in the EU, while basic wage is one of the lowest in the block. Energy poverty is, on one hand, the inability to pay energy-related bills and on the other hand, the fact that we have so many needs, we can no longer meet them. Homes are either too cold during winter or too hot during summer, there is no thermal comfort or else the energy bills will surpass 15-20% of our income.
Greenpeace Greece partnered with the Institute of Passive Houses and the Municipality of Moschato-Tavros to inform the public about passive houses and to create a pilot project for how all renovations should be done from here on. The objective is to reach their climate goals and for all to live better inside their own homes.
