When project I too can have solar collectors, developed by REGEA in 2008, was implemented in Karlovac County, Krapina-Zagorje County, Zagreb County, City of Zagreb and a number of small municipalities (Konavle, Jelsa, Sućuraj…), it was the first time that renewable sources of energy (solar collectors, pellet stoves, heat pumps…) for citizens and energy renewal of family houses were financially supported in Croatia. More than 10,000 households were included in the project, which was also implemented as part of the EU’s Sustainable Energy Europe campaign.


The new concept of biomass heat contracting, implemented by REGEA in Karlovac County since 2013, heating-oil boiler rooms are being replaced with modern biomass boiler rooms in public buildings in Karlovac, Slunj, Ozalj and Duga Resa. The investor is a private partner selling heat during the contracted duration of the project.


In 2016, REGEA developed its own model of energy performance contract and has been applying it since then. The contract ensures return on investment from the energy savings guaranteed by the service provider (an ESCO company). This model includes measuring and verification of the savings. It was used in the project of interior lighting reconstruction in three elementary schools in Krapina-Zagorje County (Donja Stubica, Oroslavje and Zabok) as well as in numerous public lighting reconstruction projects.


A City of Zagreb project of the energy renewal for 15 buildings – cultural monuments on the Klaićeva-Medulićeva-Deželićeva-Kačićeva block, including the preparation of appertaining documents. The renewal includes installation of façade heating systems on backyard facades, installation of thermal insulation on the attic or loft floors and reconstruction of all doors and windows as per conservationists’ requirements.
