Promotion of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources in non-residential buildings

GreenBuilding is a voluntary program of the European Commission initiated in 2005 which provides guidelines to owners and users of non-residential buildings for improvement in energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources.

In December 2007, a second phase of the project – GreenBuildingplus – began and for the continuation of the program Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar was appointed as one of ten partners and a national contact center for GreenBuildingplus.

HEP ESCO d.o.o. was given the status of GB Supporter and awarded as the best GB Supporter in Croatia in 2009. As GB Partners,  HEP ESCO  designated three schools – High School Bernardin Frankopan in Ogulin, Secondary School Duga Resa and Elementary School Ivan Goran Kovačić, Duga Resa – in whose buildings HEP ESCO had implemented energy efficiency projects.

The objective of the program is to improve the efficiency of energy use, to promote and use renewable energy sources, to reduce the use of fossil fuels, to protect the environment by reducing CO2 emissions, and to increase the security of energy supply. Any company or organization which will contribute to the objectives of GreenBuilding program can participate. More detailed conditions for participation are stated in Brochure
