Intending to ensure the best possible position for cities and municipalities in Croatia regarding the energy transition, we have supported 11 cities and municipalities in 2022 to renew their Commitments, or to join the EU initiative Covenant of Mayors.
With it, cities and municipalities confirmed their commitment to affordable and clean energy in their local communities.
The cities and municipalities we supported contributed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, a goal set by the EU that you can read more about here.
With this goal in mind, we developed a Joint Action Plan for Energy and Climate Sustainable Development (Joint SECAP) and four SECAPs.
Supported by the Climate Action Zlatibor project financed from the EUKI program, seven municipalities from Koprivnicka Podravina (municipalities of Legrad, Delekovec, Hlebine, Gola, Novigrad Podravski, Peteranec, and Koprivnicki Ivanec) developed its Joint SECAP, which opened the possibility to apply for certain projects and withdraw funds from national and EU sources.
This will make it easier for them to implement measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
Additionally, we created four SECAPs for three cities and one municipality (City of Beli Manastir, City of Ivanec, City of Bakar, and Municipality of Jelenje), which received co-financing from the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.
This year, we will raise energy planning to an even higher level. As part of the EUCityCalc project funded by the Horizon 2020 program, together with the lead partner Energy Cities and nine other partners across Europe, we will create and establish a tool for long-term energy planning that will enable energy and climate predictions until 2050.
