INESC TEC joins a project to tackle energy poverty

Portugal is the fifth country in the European Union (EU) at a greatest risk of energy poverty, according to recent European data and studies, which name our country as the worst in the EU concerning the percentage of children exposed to phenomena like humidity, darkness, cold and/or noise. To address a challenge launched by ERSE – Energy Services Regulatory Authority, INESC TEC joined CEVE – Cooperativa Eléctrica do Vale d’Este to support this entity in developing and implementing a set of actions to raise awareness of energy poverty in the municipalities of Vila Nova de Famalicão and Barcelos.
