An extremely fruitful discussion on new policies and mechanisms for tackling Energy Poverty was held today in Sofia, alongside the launch of the IDEA Innovative Educational Platform! Representatives from institutions, energy agencies, non-governmental organizations, and energy consultants concluded that comprehensive and targeted measures are needed, as well as organizing working groups and collaborating between all responsible parties to tackle the problem. Specific measures have been proposed, including improving energy education in order to change habits and understand citizens' energy consumption.
One of the IDEA ICT Tools is the Advisor's Quiz! The quiz is meant to evaluate the potential advisors' knowledge on the field. Of course, anyone can use them to check out how much they know about energy poverty, energy consumption and energy-saving. (!) Did you know that the quiz is translated in Croatian, Slovene, and Bulgarian?? Check it out here: http://www.project-idea.eu/tools/quiz/
