Opposition LMP wants to allocate 300 billion forints (EUR 780 million) for energy efficiency programmes, including installing insulation, changing windows and upgrading heating systems, MP Bernadett Bakos said at a press conference streamed on Facebook on Saturday.
Hungarians could be shielded from the current energy crisis by developing renewable energy sources and improving energy efficiency, Bakos said.
Hungary’s energy dependence could be improved “to a large degree” by cutting energy consumption, but that will require a “genuine, green utilities price reduction scheme”, she added.
She said between 100,000 and 150,000 homes could be insulated and get energy efficiency upgrades with 300 billion forints.
