Strategies to fight high energy prices: the WHY approach

13th of July 2022 | 09:00-13:00 CET | Online

This event is part of the WHY Second General Assembly Meeting

Watch the recording of the event here!

The current invasion of Russia into Ukraine has brought into the public discussion how impactful is our high dependency on fossil fuels. In this context, several institutions have provided a wide range of solutions to mitigate these impacts. Our second general assembly meeting we will share how Spain and Germany are facing this crisis and how energy system modellers are helping. Moreover, participants will learn about the results of a large implementation of a Time of Use Tariff and the amount of behavioural change achieved (both in terms of energy efficiency and in flexibility on the energy use). Finally, the session will end with a presentation of the 5 use cases developed into the project and how they could help to face the actual energy crisis.
