Regional workshop “Ready for nZEB” organized by the Regional Energy Agency North took place on Thursday, January 25th at the Virovitica City Council.
The workshop aimed to connect citizens and contractors applying nZEB (nearly Zero Energy Building) standards, providing information and encouraging citizens to engage in energy renovations.
Participants were introduced to the principles of nZEB construction, and during the workshop, citizens were also informed about financing possibilities and the announced conditions for energy renovation of family homes under the upcoming call from the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (FZOEU).
Energy experts from the Regional Energy Agency North presented ways in which the agency can assist citizens in their intention to energetically renovate their homes, according to the conditions published at the end of December 2023 and the criteria for the energy renovation of family houses in 2024. Emphasis was placed on the importance of involving certified and educated contractors in energy renovation projects.
