The energy transition council established by Croatian President Zoran Milanović consists of 16 experts from almost all areas relevant to changes in the energy sector. Most of the members come from academia and the civil sector as well as state-owned companies, but there are also representatives of the private sector – consultants and investors in renewables.

Julije Domac, the Croatian president’s special adviser on energy and climate and director of the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency (REGEA), is the chair of the council, established in August. One of the members is the representative of the Croatian Journalists’ Association, which indicates how important it is to inform and educate the public about the energy transition, as well as to promote it.

These are all the members:

  • Ivan Andročec, Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP),
  • Dražen Jakšić,  Hrvoje Požar Energy Institute,
  • Darko Jardas, Regional Energy Agency Kvarner,
  • Vedrana Jelušić Kašić, Deloitte,
  • Prof. Daria Karasalihović Sedlar, Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering,
  • Mario Klobučar, Hrvatske Šume,
  • Ass. prof. Ankica Kovač, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture,
  • Kristijan Lovrenščak, Tehnostan, Vukovar,
  • Boris Markota, Croatian transmission system operator HOPS,
  • Dino Novosel, Hrvatski Telekom,
  • Bojan Reščec, RP Global CSE,
  • Toni Vidan, Zelena Akcija,
  • Maruška Vizek, Institute of Economics, Zagreb,
  • Sandra Vlasic, Terra Hub,
  • Hrvoje Zovko, Croatian Journalists’ Association,
  • Ass. prof. Tea Žakula, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture.

Council held its first session

In the presence of President Milanović, the council held its first session a few days ago.

This is a group of Croatia’s best experts, respectable people who bring a multidisciplinary approach, Milanović said.

Council president Julije Domac asserted the energy transition is not a question of technology.

Energy transition is a matter of justice, giving equal opportunities to all our citizens; it is a matter of equality, sustainability, morality, generational solidarity, patriotism, future, Domac said.
