„Based on the experience on family houses energy upgrade from last year, we decided to change the programme in order for it to become more fair and enable everyone from any part of Croatia to apply,“ the country’s minister of environmental protection and nature Mihael Zmajlović said.

Last year it turned out only 180 cities and towns out of 555 enabled their inhabitants to apply for the upgrade, which is unfair, he said after the government adopted the alteration of the programme for 2014–20, with detailed plan through 2016, portal reported.

The most important change is that from this year on, the application for the house upgrade goes directly to the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund. So citizens shall no more depend on action or inaction of their mayors and municipality heads, he said. The fund has HRK 71 million (EUR 9.28 million) for the upgrade of 10,000 houses, the report said.
