Energy and Climate Change

The main goal of the Programme “Energy and Climate Change” (ECC) is to increase the usage of technologies with lower carbon emissions and enlarged security of energy supply in the Republic of Croatia, which is aligned to the key objectives of the European Economic Area (EEA) Financial Mechanism.

The Programme is focused on:

  • renewable energy
  • energy efficiency
  • energy security
  • mitigating the effects of climate change
  • adaptation to climate change


The Programme is particularly focused on energy efficiency measures and the promotion of renewable energy sources, including geothermal, marine and solar energy sources.

The Programme’s objective – Less carbon intensive energy and increased security of supply will be achieved through two outcomes:

  • Outcome 1: Improved energy efficiency is achieved through a Pre-Defined Project with the Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar as the Project Promoter and the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Zagreb as the Project Partner.
  • Outcome 2: Increased renewable energy production is achieved through


Within the program, the following are planned:

Four Calls for Proposals:

  • Energy production from the sea
  • Increased solar energy production capacity
  • Increased geothermal energy production capacity
  • Technical documentation for geothermal energy

Two Small Grant Schemes:

  • Shallow geothermal energy database 
  • Deep geothermal energy database
