From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Policy Dispatch is a podcast all about the policies that underpin the global energy transition.

The European Green Deal must put consumers at the heart of its policies. The European Commission has put strong emphasis in the social dimension of its energy and climate policies, and the energy price crisis has made it more evident that our most vulnerable consumers must not be left behind.



But even when Brussels and EU capitals have some exciting ideas to democratise and make clean energy affordable for all consumers, Europe needs to put the means and the structural measures to ensure those who need it the most can benefit from the energy transition.

In this episode, we discuss with Marine Cornelis on questions around energy poverty, consumer rights and access to clean and affordable energy as a fundamental right. Marine Cornelis is the executive director and founder of Next Energy Consumer, a policy consultancy focused on the social aspects of the energy and climate transitions. Previously, Marine served as the Secretary General of NEON, the European network of energy dispute resolution services and ombudsmen in Brussels.

Enjoy the dispatch!

Protecting customers, especially disadvantaged ones, in Europe is especially critical heading into this winter where fuel prices and availability are a major question mark. That's why we're seeing such deliberation and disagreement about the potential for a Russian oil price cap as well because of how sensitive the energy markets are for many Europeans.
