Zagreb (Croatia)


One of the first European capitals to join the Covenant of Mayors initiative, the city of Zagreb continues to show its commitment to achieve and go beyond EU energy targets. The Sustainable Energy Action Plan of the City of Zagreb is a key document for the implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and reduced impact fuel projects at city level. These activities will result in the reduction of CO2 emissions in the city of Zagreb by 21% by 2020. The obligations resulting from the action plan refer to the entire territory of the City of Zagreb, including both public and private sectors. The city’s Department of Energy, Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development was established to support these goals and coordinate municipal efforts in energy efficiency, sustainability, conservation and renewable energy.


Several major projects in the City of Zagreb are bringing the region towards its energy targets. The ZagEE project, for example, consists of two specific investments: the refurbishment of public buildings and public lighting. In terms of the former, the focus lies on building envelope insulation, joinery modernisation, and the installation of renewable energy systems on 89 public buildings.


The Borongaj Campus project, transforming the former military barracks in Borongaj into a low energy and renewable energy zone, has a very visible, public remit as a student campus including an educational and scientific research centre. Another ambitious model project is the Sunny House, built to the Passive House Standard. Located near the Bundek Lake, this public use building complete with cafes and restaurants will serve to familiarize key decision makers as well as the public with nearly zero energy building solutions on the basis of Passive House.
