Neven Duić, a full professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of the University of Zagreb, said the upcoming winter in Croatia could be slightly colder than before.

“We should consider saving gas, buying warm sweaters, pullovers, because we might have to keep warm at a lower temperature,” Duić told national broadcaster Hrvatska radiotelevizija (HRT) in a comment on rising energy prices. While 25 degrees Celsius is a typical heating temperature in Croatia, the standard in the West is 20 degrees, he pointed out and noted there are discussions to lower the level to 19 degrees. “If we cut by two degrees Celsius in Croatia, it would still be a warm 23 degrees Celsius,” he added.

Asked if Croatia has enough domestic energy sources, Kristina Čelić, director of the Energy Administration in the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, said the country has a good infrastructure for getting energy to Croatia. In her view, it means the security of supply would be strong even in case of disruption.

She noted that Croatia produces a part of the gas it consumes.
