Croatian district heating sector support facility

Project info

The project aims to establish a systematic support structure for the Croatian heating sector with the aim of accelerating the modernization and implementation of the energy transition for the district heating sector. The project consortium covers approximately 98% of the total heating sector in the Republic of Croatia in terms of delivered thermal energy.

Through the D2Heat project, technical, legal and financial support will be made available to companies engaged in the production, distribution and/or supply of thermal energy with the aim of accelerating the preparation of investment projects in the modernization of thermal energy supply and production, as well as quality preparation and implementation of the process of public acquisitions. In addition to the above, support will also be provided in the implementation of innovative models of contracting and financing of planned investments.

An important component of the project is advocating positive political changes with the aim of removing legal barriers that slow down the green energy transition of the heating sector. Activities such as the analysis of the current legislative framework, the identification of legal obstacles and the dissemination of political recommendations will try to positively influence changes in the regulatory framework for the heating sector as well as changes related to spatial and urban planning.

The ultimate goal of the D2Heat project is the obligation to initiate investments in the amount of almost EUR 40 million during its lifetime. These investments will ensure a safe, affordable and clean heating supply for all existing and future users of the district heating system.
