Poreč is a leader in the field of energy efficiency in Croatia - By 2030, they plan to reduce CO2 emissions by 40%!

Published on 22/04/2021 (last modified 28/04/2021)

In the past seven years, the City of Poreč, as a top tourist destination, has implemented almost 40 projects in the field of environmental protection, sustainable development, energy efficiency, e-mobility and climate change mitigation and adaptation and plans to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030. . One of them is the SUTRA project, about which the director of the partner company Parentium Gordana Lalić spoke in an interview with Glas Istre.

According to her, the EU project with acronyms TOMORROW is just one in a series of projects that the City of Poreč, in cooperation with the city company Parentium, is currently implementing, and whose implementation directly affects the improvement of quality of life of Poreč citizens and achieving European energy policy goals. CO2 emissions.

One of the project activities carried out by the City is the procurement of electric buses. Namely, it is an electric minibus, low-floor design, with a built-in mechanical ramp, which makes it a fully accessible vehicle for people with disabilities, with a capacity of 20 passengers and a driver, as well as a range of 120-140 kilometers, in depending on driving conditions. The vehicle is 5.79 m long and 2.06 meters wide, which makes it suitable for traffic throughout the city.

- The city has carried out all activities provided by law and is creating the preconditions for the establishment of a concession management model, and the tender is ongoing. Considering the fact that the City of Poreč covers an area of ​​139 square kilometers, has a total of 53 settlements, and is a top tourist destination whose population almost quadrupled during the summer months, the procurement and start of electric minibuses is a pilot activity in Poreč, Lalic explained.

Although Poreč is a city that is continuously developing and growing, as she said, at the same time it is very successful in reducing overall CO2 emissions. Not only that, but by drafting and adopting strategic documents, and in accordance with the European energy policy, he set new, even more ambitious goals of energy efficiency and sustainable development, which in the period by 2030, CO2 emissions in the city plan to reduce by 40 percent .

- Today, Poreč is a city whose solar power plants record 750,000 kWh of produced "green" electricity, which, in accordance with the data on annual electricity consumption in the average household in the Republic of Croatia could meet the annual electricity needs of just over 236 average households . If by any chance the same amount of energy was produced from coal, the amount of CO2 generated would be 243 tons, from fuel oil almost 193 tons, while for natural gas the amount of CO2 emitted would be about 143 tons. Poreč is also a city that has installed 1,650 new lighting fixtures in the last four years, which has achieved savings in electricity consumption of almost 76%, and the corresponding reduction of CO2 emissions, and the first city in the Istrian County that in 2015, set the first public charging station for electric vehicles, completely free of charge for users, and today it has a total of eight charging stations in its area, which puts it at the very top of the Republic of Croatia on average per capita. Finally, I would like to point out that Poreč, in cooperation with the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency, in 2014 and 2015 very successfully implemented a program to increase energy efficiency and the installation of renewable energy sources in family houses, which included a total of 28 buildings. area of ​​the City, which stimulated investments in the amount of almost 1,500,000 kuna. Thus, citizens in their homes realize annual savings in the amount of approximately 110,000 kuna, or an annual reduction of CO2 emissions of approx. 65 tons. In addition, Poreč is a city that continuously invests in energy renovation and raising the level of energy efficiency of public buildings and a city that specifically acts on laying the foundations for approaching the issue of energy renovation of buildings classified as cultural property under the protection of the conservation department, said Lalic .
