The InventAir project was approved by the EUKI initiative and will run from September 1, 2018 till April 30, 2019. Its major aim will be to explore the multiple environmental and climate impacts of energy poverty by focusing on the developent and implementation of clean air and energy poverty policies in the Eastern European Countries (EEC).

The InventAir project will explore the multiple environmental and climate impacts of energy poverty by focusing on the developent and implementation of clean air and energy poverty policies in the Eastern European Countries (EEC). Although energy poverty the energy poverty theme is rapidly spreading over EU, it has distinct specificities in EEC: low-income households cannot afford to change the old inefficient heating equipment or replace the poor quality heating fuels. Thus, they become primary cause for dramatic seasonal increase in air pollution in their communities. The lack of precise data on the quantities and quality of the fuels used makes estimation of environmental, climate and health impacts difficult. InventAir will address the problem by developing methodological framework for making an inventory of the energy poverty, transferring know-how and experience to develop municipal Woodstove Changeout roadmaps as effective policy tools to abate energy poverty and reduce pollutant emissions across EU.
