The Rexel Foundation takes action against fuel poverty

On May 10, 2017, the Rexel Foundation for a better energy future brought together its partner ecosystem for its Innovation Day dedicated to fighting fuel poverty.

Today, 12 million people are affected by fuel poverty in France. They are unable to adequately heat their homes, or use too much of their budget to do so. The aim of the event was to bring together the Rexel Foundation’s ecosystem, including partners, experts, employees and social entrepreneurs fighting fuel poverty, in order to reflect on innovative solutions to this problem together.

The 60 participants were organized into work groups seeking a solution. At the end of the day, the participants voted for the best project and the Rexel Foundation made a commitment to provide the resources necessary to materialize participants’ shared desire to efficiently and innovatively fight fuel poverty.
