In line with the guidelines of the commission for the preparation of the Energy Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia until 2030 with a vision to 2050, the Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar has prepared the Green Book, which includes the analytical foundations for the preparation of the strategy, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy said on its website.

In order to involve all interested stakeholders, the ministry published the final draft of the Green Book on its website on November 5, 2018 and invited comments to be submitted by interested parties.

After receiving the comments, the final version of the Green Book was prepared. It is officially called the Analysis and Foundations for the Preparation of the Energy Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia – the Green Book. Also, the document Analysis and Foundations for the Preparation of the Energy Development Strategy of the Republic of Croatia – Answers to the Comments to the Green Book Draft was published on October 30, 2018.

In line with the final version of the Green Book, the White Book was also prepared. The White Book represents an executive summary of the current state and analytical outcomes for selected development scenarios in line with the results of the Green Book.

In order to include the public in the discussion and the preparation of the strategy, the ministry invites all interested stakeholders to download the White Book and send comments.

Comments can be submitted to energetika@mzoe.hr until April 15, 2019.

Changes to transform energy sector

The premises, analyses, and results presented in the Green Book constitute the basis for a public discussion and rethinking of the changes that are taking place and will completely transform the energy sector and the use of energy in the coming decades.

Changes are expected in the legal framework, sector structuring, business operations, system management, implementation of new technologies, construction of new infrastructure and strengthening of the position of the end-users, the Green Book reads.

The main cause of the expected changes is the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector as part of efforts to slow down climate change and adaptation of the society and the economy.
