25 September 2018

In this blog for GreenWorld, climate justice and energy campaigner Clémence Hutin writes about the significance of Europe's heatwave of 2018, and how it should be a wakeup call not for a #fossilfree Europe and for tackling summer energy poverty.

Our current energy system is deeply wasteful, and this is holding back the transition to a fossil-free world. Using less energy is the easiest and fastest way to cut CO2 emissions, fossil fuel imports, and energy bills.

With up to 1 in 4 Europeans today living in energy poverty, energy efficiency also helps make homes more affordable to heat, cool and light. This is why Friends of the Earth Europe is campaigning for ambitious energy savings action from governments and the EU.
