EU Incentives for Energy Efficiency and Solar Systems on the Island

With the Swiss town Cernier, Hartberg Austria, Lapu Finland and Preddvor Slovenia, the project Solution, the European Commission initiative under the name Concerto III includes the sunniest Croatian island of Hvar.

These communities were selected as a typical example of
communities throughout Europe that include housing, industry, hotels, shops and
infrastructure for the holidays, and all have shown commitment and desire to
pursue sustainable development with particular barriers to involvement in a
project Solution plans to remove.

The project aims to demonstrate that these communities
through the implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy
storage can achieve sustainability in the entire cycle of production and
consumption of electricity and heat.

What
the Solution project brings to the island of Hvar?

The goal of the project on the island is to show that
through this project Hvar can achieve, to all of us well-known quota, 20%
coverage of energy consumption from its own sustainable sources by 2020. The
main prerequisites for achieving this goal includes implementing energy
efficiency measures in buildings in the private and public properties. Also,
assuming that the energy consumption in the future to grow, to achieve the set
goal is planned and wider use of photovoltaic installations and the
installation of solar collector systems and creating a foundation for the
application of biomass or biogas which should become a model in which the other
island communities could provide their energy dependence. Applying all of these
measures should cover the peak demand; in order to achieve this by using
renewable energy sources includes construction of plants for energy storage
using compressed air.

And
finally, the magic word: incentives!

There were not that many mentions of incentives to the
local government level lately, the project Solution provides the means to
encourage enforcement of thermal insulation of building envelope (insulation
installation), installation of more efficient system of air conditioning /
heating / cooling and preparation of consumable hot water, install solar
collectors and photovoltaic panels. What makes this project differ from previous
projects is the that the correct amount of approved grants will be determined
by the European Commission, all based on the project application, which must
contain a detailed description of the current condition of the building,
especially as regards the thermal envelope and building the planned savings the
design drawn up by professionals.
