Online interactive dialogue meeting with CSOs for the concept of energy poverty
On the 25th of March 2022, EDEN Center held an overarching online interactive dialogue meeting with CSOs representatives and e-ACT’s local coordinators based in 12 districts of the country. The purpose of this meeting was to introduce the concept of assessment of energy performance based on the energy poverty concept. The meeting was attended by 24 attendees, representing +15 local CSOs based in different cities and regions of Albania, engaged in the environmental, energy, and EU integration process of the country.
The online dialogue for the introduction of assessment of energy performance based on the energy poverty concept started with an opening remark by the EDEN Project Coordinator, Mr Ergi Bregasi, who briefly introduced the overall aim of the “e-ACT” project and the agenda of the meeting.
Following this, the methodology of the assessment of the energy poverty state was shared with the attendees, where comments and suggestions were gathered for its improvement in order to obtain significant findings that will enrich the upcoming advocacy and lobbying discussions with state authorities in charge of energy and environmental issues. The assessment report on energy performance based on the energy poverty concept will support the advocacy efforts and participation of CSOs in the EU pre-accession process, specifically for chapter no.15 Energy.
The online dialogue on energy poverty assessment methodology wouldn't be productive without the active participation and contribution of CSOs representatives, activists, and local coordinators.
The online interactive dialogue meeting with CSOs for the introduction of the energy poverty concept comes as part of the "Empowering Civil Society Activism and Concrete contribution into EU accession negotiation process in Albania", implemented by EDEN Center and EDMI, with the financial support of the European Union in the frame of IPA 2017 program.
