Adoption and implementation of the Programme for energy poverty alleviation

The MRV system (SMiV – System for Measurement, Monitoring and Verification of Energy Savings) is defined by the Croatian Energy Efficiency Act and the Regulation on the System for Measurement, Monitoring and Verification of Energy Savings as the national system for monitoring, measurement and verification of energy savings. The SMiV online platform is based on bottom-up methodology and is used at the local and national level to calculate, analyse and archive energy savings and the corresponding CO2 emissions in industry, buildings, transport and service (public and commercial) sectors, under a unified methodology defined by EU standards. The data of energy savings can therefore offer a national and local overview of the relation to the accomplishment of national energy efficiency targets. As of 2021, SMiV is administered by the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development. The main users of the application are defined by the national Energy Efficiency Act (public sector, ESCO, subsidy providers). The system is mentioned in the NECP (Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan) as the tracking method for numerous measures. According to the NECP, it is also planned to integrate SMiV into a larger database which would include the Information System for Energy Management (ISEM), which collects the energy consumption data in the public sector.

According to the NECP, the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning has developed the „Amendments to the Programme of Energy Renovation of Family Houses“, which has included for the first time measures for energy poverty elimination, with a co-financing rate of 100% for eligible citizens.

In addition to these programmes, under the Building Act, the Government of the Republic of Croatia, as proposed by the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning, will adopt a Long-Term Strategy for the Renovation of the National Building Stock by 2050, which will include national measures to alleviate energy poverty achieved through deep renovation of buildings.

From 2021 to 2030, measures will be implemented under the Programme for Elimination of Energy Poverty, among others to establish a system of increasing energy efficiency at the level of energy-poor households and households at risk of energy poverty. Before starting the implementation of NECP, the Programme for Elimination of Energy Poverty will be prepared.

The adoption and implementation of the Programme for energy poverty alleviation, as stated in the NECP, has energy poverty alleviation and its degree of vulnerability as the main objective, along with the establishment of an energy efficiency monitoring system which will consider the implementation of technical energy efficiency measures in energy poor households.

Webinar report – How to set up and manage an energy efficiency fund?

Article 7 of the EED is one of the most important instruments for achieving the ambitious European energy efficiency targets. It allows the use of an Energy Efficiency Fund which can receive amounts from payments of obligated parties (or market participants) and the public budget to finance energy efficiency actions to generate required energy savings.

Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme: insights from Croatia

Croatia uses a combination of the Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme (EEOS) and alternative measures to achieve the energy efficiency target.
