Mobilize economic, political & academic actors to innovate in the fight against fuel poverty
The HOPE Chair was created under the patronage of the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity and with the support of Marjolaine Meynier-Millefert, MP for Isère
What is fuel poverty ?
Fuel poverty can be defined as the difficulty, or even the inability, to meet one's basic energy needs in order to live decently in one's home and move around at an acceptable cost. The definition used in France is given by the law n° 90-449 of May 31, 1990 aimed at implementing the right to housing - article 1-1
Fuel poverty : A multi-faceted reality with significant impacts on the economy, health and the environment
A report by the National Observatory of Energy Poverty reveals that 1 in 5 French people (more than 12 million individuals) are in energy poverty, which means that their energy expenses exceed 8% of their income, that they declare that they suffer from the cold during the winter period, which leads to public health problems and situations of exclusion, and that they have few means of transportation.
It is in this context that the Grenoble INP Foundation and partners from various backgrounds have come together to create the HOPE Chair of Excellence.
Access to energy is vital for each human being to reach a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.
We develop a technical, sociological and organizational collaborative work between researchers, academics, economic, industrial, public and private actors around the stakes related to precariousness to better objectify the relationship between "sufficient access to energy", "health/well-being" and bring this knowledge to all the actors of our country who wish to commit themselves for each citizen in a sustainable way.
