Association for Sustainable Development (ASOR) organized a conference ’Energy efficiency improvement in local municipalities’ on April 5. It was the first in a series of events planned with the aim to raise public interest for sustainable development in Serbia.

Maja Turković, director of Wind Power Co., welcomed speakers and guests and opened the conference. Dušan Ignjatović, assistant professor at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade, presented his paper ’The Construction Fund of Residential Buildings in Serbia: Energy Performance and Possibilities for Improvement’. He reminded energy efficiency of Serbian buildings is very low. His study shows that 83% of the structures has no wall thermal insulation, so there is a lot of room for improvement.
