Healthy forests, sufficient energy

News: 22 September 2022

Our series about healthy forests, sufficient energy has come to an end. Here are the last two examples.

GreenDependent – as part of the Ne vágj ki minden fát (Don’t cut down all our trees) community - which includes civil and expert organizations as well as artists – is showing how the needs of those living in energy and/or housing poverty can be met in a more sustainable, greener way. Let’s make sure that we all have healthy forests, sufficient energy!

The examples (with one exception) were collected in the frame of an H2020 project called EnergyPROSPECTS which aims at raising awareness about the different forms of energycitizenship.

Social Solar Powerplant

The project aims at providing at least one heated (bed)room for socially severely disadvantaged households in Tiszabő (Eastern Hungary) where there is at least one child under the age of 3. As the families do not have enough money to renovate their houses, instead of getting the so-called "social timber" donation provided by the local municipalities, the households receive electricity generated from a locally installed Social Solar Powerplant donated by E.ON Hungary and the Hungarian Order of Malta. Furthermore, the households get electric heaters to place in bedrooms where the small child(ren) sleep.

Working together to reduce energy poverty – Ág, the case of a dead-end village in Baranya county

The location of this case is in a region with cumulative disadvatage, but the population is willing to change this. That is why several projects are located here. Apart from the – previously published – Heat Columns, the community is working on reducing energy poverty in many different ways: e.g., by establishing a communal/village cashdesk, insulating houses, changing the stoves etc.

All the cases can be found on our website: https://intezet.greendependent.org/en/news
