Energy Efficiency in Buildings
in Croatia

Back to stories

Energy consumption in the Croatian building sector represents around 25% of the total primary energy supply or around 40% of the final energy demand in Croatia.

The share of CO2 emissions from the building sector in the total CO2 emission from all stationary and mobile energy sources in Croatia is between 15% and 20%.

In April 2010, Croatia adopted important legislation to implement EU directives, on the way to its accession to the Union. The new legislation regulates energy efficiency programming on national and local level, putting pressure on the public sector to introduce energy management practices, limiting direct consumption of energy by each sector.
