From 10 August to 09 September 2020, the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets conducts a public consultation on the Long-term Strategy for National Building Stock Renovation by 2050.
- The public concerned may submit comments and proposals by 9 September 2020 electronically to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to remedy technical difficulties within the e-Consultation application, consultation is carried out via e-mail.
According to the obligations defined by the Construction Act (OG 153/13, 20/17, 39/19, 125/19) Article 47a, and taken over from the amending Directive (EU) 2018/844, the Republic of Croatia is obliged to submit to the European Commission a long-term strategy for encouraging investments in the reconstruction of the national building stock of the Republic of Croatia.
The goal of the long-term strategy for encouraging investments in the reconstruction of the national building stock is to achieve a highly efficient and decarbonised national building stock by 2050 and to make the necessary progress towards transforming existing buildings into nearly zero-energy buildings, particularly by increasing in-depth renovations. Integral energy renovation should include encouraging highly effective alternative systems if this is technically, functionally and economically feasible, taking into account issues related to healthy in-door climate conditions (moisture remediation, CO2 reduction, etc.), fire protection and risks related to increased earthquake action, and reconstruction of damage caused by the earthquake that hit Zagreb and its surroundings on 22 March 2020 will be the driving force of energy renovation of buildings in the City of Zagreb and Krapina-Zagorje County. The long-term strategy provides clear guidelines, defines measurable, targeted measures and equal access to finance, among others for segments of the national buildings stock with the worst performance and for citizens affected by energy poverty. The long-term strategy shall establish a clear level of ambition regarding the energy renovation of existing buildings in order to achieve the European Union’s targets of developing a sustainable, competitive, secure and decarbonised energy system by 2050.
