Julije Domac, Director of the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency (REGEA), became the special adviser on energy and climate to new Croatian President Zoran Milanović.

He is also the president of the European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment – FEDARENE from 2013.

Our future must be green – or we simply won’t have it

Domac said he is very proud to advise the Croatian president on energy and climate, topics of the utmost importance for the REGEA and FEDARENE Director.

He added he believes that all citizens in Croatia would be able to stimulate good ideas and help Croatia “become what it can and should be – a European leader and an example of sustainable energy use and climate protection.”

Domac asserted he is looking forward to the opportunity and that he would strive to incorporate all the best from the experience of REGEA and FEDARENE. He isn’t affiliated with any party.

“The energy transition is happening and should happen everywhere – from a small school that is being energy renovated to major infrastructure investments in heating, clean transport and electricity production from renewable energy sources,” he said, adding future must be green – or that people “simply won’t have it.”

REGEA is one of the most active energy agencies in the region.

In November last year, REGEA and Regional Development Agency Zlatibor (RRA Zlatibor) in Serbia signed a memorandum of cooperation that envisages establishing Serbia’s first energy agency.

Zoran Milanović was elected as fifth President of Croatia on January 5.
