Replication Workshop of the nZEB Ready Project Held in Sveti Martin na Muri

As part of the final activities of the nZEB Ready project, REA North held a replication workshop on June 13, 2024, in Sveti Martin na Muri, which was attended by representatives from 14 different municipalities, cities, as well as energy and development agencies.

The replication workshop of the nZEB Ready project was held as part of the training program for working with the EU City Calculator web tool from the EUCityCalc project, both projects funded by the Horizon2020 program.

Damir Mandic, Business Development Manager at REA North, presented the main results of the nZEB Ready project to the participants of the replication workshop. The project’s goal was to increase the market’s readiness for the efficient implementation of projects related to the nZEB construction standard and to stimulate the demand for workers and professionals who will have the necessary skills in the field of energy efficiency and sustainable construction.

In his presentation, Damir Mandic emphasized that the project’s goals in Croatia were achieved through activities aimed at raising public awareness about nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB), conducting interactive training sessions for representatives of public administration and professionals from the fields of construction, architecture, and mechanical engineering, and providing guidelines for the implementation of public procurement procedures to stimulate the demand for nZEB construction skills.

Participants of the replication workshop showed particular interest in the activities conducted for representatives of public administration, specifically in informing and educating about the possibilities of energy renovation of existing buildings and the construction of new ones according to the nZEB standard. They were also interested in the practical part of the training, where participants were introduced to building air-tightness testing using the Blower-door test, the use of thermal cameras, devices for testing heat transfer coefficients, and more.

Regional Energy Agency North plans to continue its activities in raising awareness about the nZEB construction standard even after the nZEB Ready project concludes.
