So far, Croatian tourism sector was not a part of the energy efficiency incentives. However, this is a major chance for investment. In coming days, the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund will concentrate on this agenda. At a recent conference that took place in Zagreb on December 4th, it was disclosed.
The Director of FZOEU, Dubravko Ponos, highlighted that the fund had already spend 1.6 billion kunas in upgrading the energy projects. Many of them utilize energy for renewable purposes. To quote Ponos, “also, 15.6 million kunas has been invested exclusively in tourism sector for this purpose, with 70 individual projects. I am sure that interest will be greater in the future. We will also use EU funding to make our tourism industry even more competitive.”
He also said that in terms of tourism, the issue related to transportation should also not be forgotten as this area is about to undergo a major change in the coming days. To quote him, “there is a need to develop infrastructure along the roads, but also in terms of tourist offer of individual towns which will have to offer alternative mobility solutions, such as public bicycle rental systems. Accommodation facilities will also have to offer solutions, from charging stations in hotel garages to electric bicycles rentals.”
